Senate Bill 168 gap reduction targets
Web tip: The URL shortcut to this page is www.fcps.net/sb168.
State law (KRS.158.649) requires school districts to set annual targets for reducing achievement gaps. The Kentucky legislation, which originated and is commonly known as Senate Bill 168, took effect in July 2002. Under these guidelines, "achievement gap" refers to a substantial difference in performance on state tests between the various groups of students in each grade level.
Each School-Based Decision Making Council sets its own school's goals after identifying which achievement gaps to target for closure, and these goals are included in the annual Comprehensive School Improvement Plan.
For questions, please contact the school directly.
