Standards Implementation in Kentucky: Local Perspectives on Policy, Challenges, Resources, and Instruction

In this report, C-SAIL presents findings from surveys of teachers, principals, and district administrators in three main sections: 1) the policy attributes; 2) challenges to implementing standards as well as the resources respondents use to help them meet the challenges and the resources they report wanting more of in order to continue improving their implementation; and 3) the content of instruction.

These analyses help us answer the following C-SAIL implementation research questions: 1) To what extent is the policy system specific, consistent, authoritative, powerful, and stable, at the state, district, and school levels? 2) What are the implementation challenges and resources at the state, district, and school levels? and 3) How are teachers changing the content they cover, and how does this differ for the subjects of ELA and math as well as for teachers of ELLs, teachers of c-sail.org | 3 SWDs, and for elementary and high school teachers? Principals report on the district and their school, and teachers report on their school.
