Kentucky's Unbridled Learning assessment and accountability system is designed to provide in-depth information about the performance of students, schools, districts and the state as a whole.

    In September 2016, Hopkins County Schools was named a Distinguished District for the third year in a row by Kentucky’s Unbridled Learning Assessment and Accountability System.

    That’s the highest classification established by the Kentucky Department of Education.

    Kentucky’s public school students participate in annual testing, and the results of those tests are included in the state’s accountability system for schools and districts.

    Kentucky's educational reforms are based upon the principle that schools must be held accountable for the progress of their students. Frequent, meaningful testing is required to assess the extent of student progress toward proficiency; accurate, understandable reporting is required so that all stakeholders in Kentucky education have the data needed for making effective decisions concerning school policies, programs and curricula.
