Kentucky Education Commissioner Stops In Henderson

Kentucky will soon be launching a new accountability system for schools in the commonwealth.
 
The Kentucky Education Commissioner was in Henderson on Monday to introduce the plan.
 
Teachers and administrators filed into the Henderson County Schools Professional Development Center waiting to find out how their feedback worked into a new proposed accountability system for Kentucky.
 
The still unnamed new accountability system has been in development for the past year and is not based on test scores but the students as a whole.
 
"Students have to be at the center of the system was a big thing we should value the whole child it can't just be about math and reading tests anymore" said Education commissioner Stephen Pruitt "we have to also value the fact that they need to be healthy they need to be involved in visual and performing arts they need to have access to science and social studies in all grades."
 
Pruitt says that a final plan for the accountability system needs to be filed with the federal government by September 18th.
 
This was his last stop throughout the commonwealth sharing the new plan.
