|Notes for Current System||Rating: Statute specifies that rating must "not consist of a single summative numerical score that ranks schools against each other." |
Per current regulations, accountability system has three components: Next Generation Learners (see 703 Ky. Admin. Regs. 5:200; describes different indicators from statute), Next Generation Instructional Programs and Support (see 703 Ky. Admin. Regs. 5:230), and Next Generation Professionals (regulation to be promulgated by the state board).
