2018 Elementary Results Raise Concerns

by | Sep 26, 2018

Compared to 2017, elementary school KPREP results released today showed declining levels of proficiency in math, social studies and writing and only small increases in reading proficiency.

As shown in the table below, this pattern was visible for all students and also for students with identified disabilities, students eligible for free or reduced-price meals, African American students, Hispanic students, and students of two or more races. Results were a bit better in reading and mathematics for English learners.

The Prichard Committee statement on citizen engagement and state policy leadership to build robust and consistent improvement is available here.


Since 1983, the Prichard Committee has worked to study priority issues, inform the public and policy makers about best practices and engage citizens, business leaders, families, students, and other stakeholders in a shared mission to move Kentucky to the top tier of all states for education excellence and equity for all children, from their earliest years through postsecondary education.
