According to a press release from Christian County Public Schools, The Kentucky Department of Education notified state public school superintendents on Tuesday that K-PREP testing for the 2019-20 school year has been canceled.
U.S. Department of Education officials announced March 20 that students at schools closed due to the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic can bypass standardized testing for the 2019-20 school year. Kentucky applied for a waiver and was notified over the weekend that it was tentatively approved by the federal government.
Christian County Public Schools will follow that guidance and not administer K-PREP testing.
The press release added that there is currently no information regarding Advanced Placement testing at this time.
