Kentucky’s new assessment and accountability information was released to the public today, and one area of great interest involves the schools that were identified as lowest performing under the “Comprehensive Support and Improvement” (CSI) category.
The issue to be addressed here is that not all of the new CSI schools are really equal. In fact, a number of the new CSI schools were in trouble under the old Priority Schools system right up to the end of that program and apparently still are doing rock-bottom compared to the rest of the state. I think these Priority-CSI schools need special consideration and attention going forward, but it doesn’t look like the Kentucky Department of Education is on top of this one, so far. Hopefully, that will change.
