Kentucky Looking to Change Accountability System Again?

May 30, 2019

According to Olivia Krauth at Insider Louisville, Kentucky’s school accountability system will soon change due to passage or recent legislation. “The state changed how it identifies schools for additional support last year in compliance with the federal Every Student Succeeds Act,” and then “rolled out two labels: Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) and Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI)—the bottom 5% of schools and those with student subgroups performing at that level, respectively.” Now, “those accountability identifiers could change, altering the TSI definition for fall 2019 and adding a third tier of support in fall 2020.” If implemented, the state “could see fewer schools identified for support but more underserved groups slipping through the cracks.”
