Kentucky Education Department Prepares to Release Alternative Schools Data

The Kentucky Department of Education is planning to release data next month on the state’s alternative schools for the first time as they look to improve transparency and accountability for the population the schools serve. Over 70,000 students are estimated to attend alternative programs in the state, many of which are in specialized schools that range in services and purposes.
