Kentucky Academic Standards

Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS)

The Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS) contain the minimum required standards that all Kentucky students should have the opportunity to learn before graduating. The standards address what is to be learned, but do not address how learning experiences are to be designed or what resources should be used. Kentucky  Academic Standards help ensure that all students across the commonwealth are focusing on a common set of standards and have opportunities to learn at a high level.

The Kentucky Department of Education has also created Standards Family Guides to help families familiarize themselves with the content of each grade level's standards.  Each guide contains an overview for Reading and Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
