Anchorage Independent School District was among 16 school districts recognized by the Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) and the Kentucky Department of Education at the board’s meeting yesterday. The districts earned the recognition under the Unbridled Learning: College and Career Readiness for All accountability system. To qualify, a district must have an overall accountability score at the 95th percentile or higher (based on achievement, gap, growth, college and career readiness, graduation rate and program reviews), meet its current year Annual Measurable Objective, have at least a 95 percent participation rate in statewide assessments and not have a Focus or Priority School. The achievement data is based on K-PREP testing in spring 2016. Earlier this year, our district received a recognition banner and a letter of commendation, along with a District of Distinction logo.
