Also on hand for the meeting were State Reps. Walter "Dec" Blevins and John Will Stacy. Those in attendance watched a video-taped pre- sentation by Kentucky Ed- ucation Commissioner Ter- ry HoUiday, who discussed the latest assessment and accountability system in- volved in the Common- wealth's latest education reform efforts known as Unbridled Learning. Instead of being fled to a single of measure of prog- ress, Holliday said, schools will now be "graded" on several factors, includ- ing testing achievement, progress made in reaching underprivileged students (known as "gap'3, growth of school systems' prog- ress in reading and math scores, college and career readiness of graduates, and the district's graduation rate. Holliday said in the pre- sentation that all of these factors will be combined into a single number and will be presented as a per- centile score to measure a school's performance. KSBA staff members on hand at the meeting went into more depth about mea- suring student assessment "Next Generation Learn- ers," as they are called in the education reform plan, will take part in a set of testing and assessment for elementary, middle, and high schools. All of the as- sessment information will be combined into a single "Kentucky School Report Card," which will contain the school's overall score, percentile rank in the state, the school's classification (dis "tmguished, proficient, needs improvement), and the state's goals for the school, which will serve as a baseline for the measure of the school's progress in the years to follow. The School Report Card aims to make school prog- ress easier to understand and to make school ac- countability more readily understandable to the pub- lic. The Commonwealth's overall goal is to go from currently having 34% of stu- dents "college and career ready" to 67% by 2015, and to increase the graduation rate from 76% today to 90% by 2015.
