In preparation for the 2016 release of data from Kentucky’s Unbridled Learning
Assessment and Accountability System, the Kentucky Department of Education Division of Communications held
a virtual briefing for media, school public relations staff and any other
Associate Commissioner Rhonda Sims from the Office of Assessment and Accountability provides a brief
review of state testing and the accountability system, explains changes from last year and previews what you can expect
to see on the School Report Card this year. Communications Director Rebecca Blessing discusses the logistics of
this year’s data release and Media Liaison Nancy Rodriguez fielded e-mail questions.
Data will be released to the media only under strict embargo, Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 27. The embargo will be
lifted and the data made public at 12:01 a.m. ET on Thursday, September 29.
