20-21 Assessment Update from Bobby Murphy - Director of Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment
Anderson County Schools invites our community to inspect the following 2020-2021 School Year Assessment Update information.  It's no secret, the past couple of school years have proven to bring extraordinary challenges for students, families, and staff.  Anderson County Schools is utilizing the information gained from our 2020-2021 assessments as an important “temperature check” that allows us to better track and address student recovery. The results will be used to help direct COVID-related recovery efforts supported by state and federal relief funds. We owe it to our students to use every piece of information we have to help them succeed.  Thank you for your time and partnership as we continue to strengthen our education system together.

Below you will find the Kentucky State Assessment information. Anderson County specific data can be found in the attachments at the bottom of the page.
