EXCERPT from the Town Hall flyer:
As Kentucky prepares to implement the new federal education law
known as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in 2017,
Kentucky Commissioner of Education Stephen Pruitt is hosting a
series of Education Town Hall Meetings to determine how
Kentuckians define school success.
What do you expect from our schools?
What school characteristics are most important?
How should we measure school success?
How do we ensure all schools are successful?
How should we celebrate school success?
This listening tour is your opportunity to provide input to the Kentucky Department of Education on the design of a new education accountability system that will be used as the basis to improve our schools and celebrate their educational progress. The goal is to produce a system that is fair, reliable, valid and easier to understand.
See attached for more information on the Education Town Hall Meetings or go to the Kentucky Department of Education webpage.
