The Kentucky State Personnel Development Grant includes a series of research-based goals and objectives for the five proposed initiatives. It is our hope that these goals and objectives will be a catalyst in this comprehensive effort to improve teaching and learning and support rigorous academic standards for students.
Closing the Achievement Gap
Goal: To better prepare all students with disabilities to reach proficiency and graduate from high school ready for college and careers through increased academic (reading and math) achievement and closing existing achievement gaps.
Low Incidence
Goal: To better prepare students with low incidence disabilities to reach proficiency and graduate from high school ready for college and careers through increased and enhanced academic achievement, communication capacity, and transition opportunities.
