The 2022-2023 School Report Card has been released for the Kenton County School District. School and District Report Cards provide information including test performance, teacher qualifications, student safety, and much more. Results from the annual Kentucky Summative Assessment (KSA) can be found in the School Report Card. The KSA is the annual summative assessment given in grades 3 through 8, 10 and 11 to Kentucky public school students. KSA provides content area assessments, including reading and mathematics (grades 3 through 8 and 10), science (grades 4, 7, 11), on-demand writing and editing and mechanics (grades 5, 8, 11), and social studies (grades 5, 8, 11). KSA assessments are Kentucky’s measure of student proficiency and progress on the state content standards. These standards establish goals for what all students should know and be able to do in each grade.
The state’s accountability system's overall performance for each district and school is reported by color ratings including five performance levels from highest to lowest: Blue (Very High), Green (High), Yellow (Medium), Orange (Low) and Red (Very Low) in the 2023 Fall reporting period.
The KCSD overall was Green at the elementary level and Yellow at the middle and high school levels. Additionally, overall individual school ratings are as follows: 3 Blue Schools (Fort Wright Elementary, Hinsdale Elementary, and Ryland Elementary); 9 Green Schools (Caywood Elementary, Kenton Elementary, Piner Elementary, River Ridge Elementary, Summit View Academy - Elementary, Taylor Mill Elementary, Twenhofel Middle School, White’s Tower Elementary, and Woodland Middle School); 4 Yellow Schools (Scott High School, Simon Kenton High School, Summit View Academy - Middle, and Turkeyfoot Middle School); and 2 Orange Schools (Beechgrove Elementary and Dixie Heights High School).
The 2023 KCSD School Report card areas of strength include but are not limited to the following:
● The percentage of students scoring Proficient and Distinguished is at or above the state in all content areas and all levels with the exception of High School Science.
● KCSD had 12 out of 18 schools performing at the Very High or High overall level.
● Elementary and middle schools’ overall indicator rating for Reading and Math was at the green rating.
● Elementary, Middle Schools and High Schools’ overall rating for Science, Social Studies, and Combined Writing earned a green rating.
● Students outperformed the state on the ACT in all areas.
● The 4-year Graduation Rate is up 2% at 95.6% and Postsecondary Readiness within the past two years has increased 25.6%.
● KCSD reduced the number of schools with the federal classification of Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI) from eight to three. (TSI schools are those who have a subgroup performing at or below the bottom 5% of all schools.)
The 2023 KCSD School Report card areas of growth include but are not limited to the following:
● Continue to increase proficiency levels for all students in all areas with placing an emphasis on schools performing below the high(green) and very high (blue) levels.
● Improving Proficiency in the Gap Subgroups is an area for growth as the district has three schools identified as Targeted Support for Improvement (TSI): one for EL Plus Monitored Students (Turkeyfoot Middle School) and three for Students with Disabilities (Beechgrove Elementary, Summit View Academy - Middle, and Turkeyfoot Middle School)
We want to thank all of our stakeholders for their commitment to our students through a growth mindset and daily efforts. We are very proud of our work and results and are committed to continuous growth of our instructional priorities to ensure an equitable learning environment for all.
