  • Kentucky Core Academic Standards?


  • Tell me what you already know about the Kentucky Core Academic Standards (KCAS).

  • What do you think you need to know about the KCAS?

Senate bill 1
Senate Bill 1

  • Focus on college / career readiness

  • Revised standards

  • Revised assessment system

  • Collaborate across all groups / levels

  • Improve the effectiveness of teaching and learning

Key points
Key Points

  • Part of SB 1

  • KCAS are based on the NationalStandards

  • Focus on college/career readiness

  • Adopted by 34 states

  • Assessment begins 2011-2012

  • Addresses English/Language Arts and Math

  • E/LA also includes Literacy Standards for History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects

Bcps state network teams

  • Content Teachers

    • Math –Kristy Tinelli (BEHS), Angela Rutledge (EMS), Kristie Hayes (LJES), Patrick Durham (PGES)

    • English / Language Arts – Susan Smuskiewicz (NBHS), Tonie Weddle (BLMS), Leslie Fox

  • KLA – Christy Coulter (BCHS), Melissa Whicker (EMS), Staci Goedde (LJES)

  • ISLN – Keith Davis, Greg Schultz, Dave Marshall, Terry Price

English/Language Arts

  • Anchor Standards – These ‘anchors’ define general, cross-disciplinary

  • expectations that indicate readiness to enter college/workforce. There are

  • 4 sets of ‘anchors’ which will be the same K – 12:

    - Reading

    - Writing

    - Language

    - Speaking/Listening

  • Strands – The ‘anchors’ aredivided into “strands” (i.e. Key Ideas and

  • Details under Reading).

  • Grade Specific Standards – These ‘standards’ define end-of-year

  • expectations designed to guide student progression.

  • Grade Bands – ‘Standards’ are divided into individual grade ‘bands’ (grades K-8)

  • and two years bands for high schools (grades 9 -12).

  • Appendices – These include exemplar texts, performance tasks and student

  • work.

    “The focus of the new standards is on

    RESULTS rather than MEANS.”

Other literacy points
Other Literacy Points

  • Integrated Model, which

    includes research and media


  • Shared responsibility for

    literacydevelopment. Science,

    Social Studies and Technical

    Subjects are addressed for

    grades 6 – 12.


  • Math standards are organized by grade level K – 8.

  • High school standards are arranged by strands:

    • Number/Quantity

    • Algebra

    • Functions

    • Modeling

    • Geometry

    • Statistics/Probability


  • Mathematical Practices – describe varieties of expertise that mathematic educators at all levels should seek to develop.

  • Domains – overarching concepts and topics:

    (e.g. Numbers and Operations in Base 10)

  • Clusters – groups of related standards within each Domain:

    (e.g. Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.)

  • Standards – define what students should understand/be able to do:

    (e.g. Use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100.)

Future considerations
Future Considerations

  • What is the timeline and framework for the BCPS rollout?

  • Who will be responsible for each component?

  • How will we incorporate the ELA components into Social Studies, Science and Practical Living?

  • How do we provide a bridge for teachers as we implement the new standards?


  • New standards and other

  • resources are posted on KDE and

  • OVEC websites.

  • Also see

  • from the Common Core Curriculum

  • Mapping Project for units that

  • address each standard.
