Kentucky’s new Accountability Model is designed around four strategic priorities: Next-Generation Learners, Next-Generation Professionals, Next-Generation Instructional Programs and Supports, and Next-Generation Schools and Districts.

Program reviews are one of the Next Generation Support Systems priorities and are written for four (4) areas:

  1. Arts & Humanities,
  2. Practical Living and Career Studies, and
  3. Writing. 
  4. Kindergarten through Third Grade

These serve a number of purposes, which include:

  • improving the quality teaching and learning for all students in all programs
  • allowing equal access to all students the skills that will assist them in being productive citizens
  • allowing student demonstration of understanding beyond a paper-and-pencil test
  • ensuring a school-wide natural integration of the program skills across all contents, beyond the program areas

The review of a program should be an on-going, year-round, reflective process. Through careful review schools will be able to identify strengths, which can be shared with other programs within the building. A careful review will also allow for the identification of weaknesses and areas of growth.  It is to a school’s advantage to communicate the program review process and documents to all staff. As staff identifies their roles in supporting school programs, they can contribute to the process of evidence identification and program improvement.
