The Kentucky General Assembly passed Senate Bill 1 (SB1) on March 25, 2022. SB1 will provide greater flexibility to local school districts and superintendents to help guarantee student, principal and faculty success. Some of the reforms KASS is proud to have pushed for will:
- Allow superintendents and education leaders to collaborate with principals, school councils, and other stakeholders to ensure a coherent and aligned curriculum district-wide.
- Ensure successful, innovative learning programs are properly funded, sustainable and scalable.
- Provide superintendents the authority, in consultation with the school council, to hire principals, and determine how to deploy the BOE allocations to the school.
- Give a significant voice to teachers and parents through school councils, along with greater community buy-in.
