Summary of data
There is a discrepancy in the data reported to CKSEC from KDE and the data reported to two districts (Bourbon and Frankfort). Bourbon County’s graduation rate for 08-09 was reported as
51.72 with 15 graduates on the CKSEC report, and as 53.33 with 16 graduates on their district report received by KDE.
Frankfort Ind’s graduation rate for 08-09 was reported as 33.33 with 2 dropouts on the CKSEC report, and as 100% with no dropouts on the district report.

Two CKSEC districts (Boyle, Washington) reported errors to their graduation rate after the Feb. 15 deadline. Boyle’s data increased from 51.72 with 4 graduates, to 78.38 with 29 graduates.
Washington’s data increased from 0.00 with 0 graduates to 53.85 with 7 graduates.

With these 4 changes the CKSEC data increased from 73.98 to 80.04.
Using this corrected data, 13 districts met the state target of 75.9, and 9 districts did not meet the target. One very small district did not have any SWD in the 12the grade for 08-09.

Trend data
CKSEC districts have had some growth and one year decline (05-06) in graduation rates for SWD over the past years. Districts have experienced increases and decreases across the years
also. Three districts (Harrison, Mercer, and Nelson) have met the state target all four years, using the corrected data Boyle County has also met the state target for four years.

Indicator 2 – Dropouts
Summary of data
Indicator 2 is effected by the difference in the report sent to Frankfort Ind (0 dropouts) by KDE and the report sent to CKSEC (2 dropouts for FIS). Regional the dropout rate decreased from
108(2.78) to 106 (2.73) using the Frankfort Ind report. Using either number CKSEC met the state target of a dropout rate less than 3.80.

Using the corrected data, 18 districts met the state target, and 5 districts did not. Three districts (KSD, Burgin, and Frankfort) reported no dropouts for 08-09.

Trend Data
CKSEC districts are reporting a much lower dropout rate for SWD over the past three years. 154 dropouts were reported for the CKSEC districts for 07-08, and 106 were reported for the 08-
09 school year. This indicates 48 more students with disabilities stayed in CKSEC schools during the 08-09 schol year. Nine districts (Anderson, Clark, Frankfort, Harrison, Mercer, Nelson,
Washington, Woodford, KSD) have meet the state target for the past three years.

                                             Explanation of Root Causes
CKSEC districts having dropouts for 08-09 determined the root cause to be many reasons. The majority of the
districts (9) chose other on their district reports. Of the nine, three were lack of individualized interventions.
Addition comments for the root cause of other were: academic failure, awareness/ownership of At-Risk Students,
students attending multiple schools, Four districts determined excessive student absenteeism. No district selected
policies and procedures as a root cause for students with disabilities dropping out.
A review of activities for districts not meeting the target indicates 11 of the 20 plan to implement or continue to
implement mentoring programs to improve the dropout rate. Seven district plans focus on improving academics
through alternative programs, credit recovery, and/or reading interventions. Two districts, with the root cause of
absenteeism, reported plans involving the community, courts and family to improve attendance.

For the three districts (Frankfort, Burgin, KSD) not reporting dropouts for 08-08 the root causes were positive
behavior supports (Frankfort, Burgin), and other, low teacher pupil ratios with a transition counselor (KSD). A
review of activities for these districts indicates individual student monitoring and mentoring will be continued, as
well as positive behavior supports ( KYCID, PASS, Why Try, CKSEC Behavior Cadre).

Indicator 4A – Percent of districts indentified by the state as having a significant discrepancy in the rates of suspensions and expulsions of
children with disabilities for greater than 10 days in a school year.

Summary of Data
21 of the 23 districts met the state established target. Two districts (Danville, Frankfort) had a significant discrepancy and were identified as not
meeting the target. 13 districts reported no suspensions for SWD over ten days. Of the 10 districts reporting over 10 days suspensions, several
have concluded an error in the rollover between STI and IC, and inconsistent record keeping may be the reason for the data showing students
being suspended more than 10 days.

Both districts identified as not meeting the target (Danville, Frankfort) had met the state target for the previous three years. Washington County
did not meet the target for 07-08, but did for 08-09.

Explanation of Root Causes
The two CKSEC districts not meeting the target determined different root causes. Danville determined zero tolerance policies that fail to take into
account SWD as the root cause, and Frankfort determined failure to differentiate discipline practices based on individual needs.

Eight districts (Fayette, Clark, Bourbon, Scott, Nicholas, Nelson, KSD, Burgin) reported the root cause for meeting the target to be routine practice of
monitoring suspension data and intervening proactively. Six districts (Washington, Woodford, Powell, Jessamine, Bardstown, Marion) determined the
root cause for meeting the state target to be implementation and communication of a tracking system. District policies, procedures, and practices that
encourage the use of suspension as a last resort was the root cause selected by five districts (Anderson, Montgomery, Franklin, Paris, Mercer). Boyle
County determined PD and support for teachers and administrators in differentiate discipline practices was the root cause. While Harrison County
determined the development and use of appropriate alt. to suspensions was the reason for meeting the state target.

The main activity identified for district maintainence reports was refinement of a tracking system to notify teachers, ARC chairs, and administrators
throughout the school year (usually monthly) of individual students days of suspension. Five districts will begin a practice of convening the ARC when
a SWD has over 5 days suspension for one school year.

Summary of Data
Three districts (KSD, Anderson, and Burgin) of the 23 districts met the state established target. Since KSD does not have a non-disabled population for comparison this indicator
does not apply. The remaining 20 districts did not meet the established target.

When ranking the CKSEC districts based on the percent of difference between SWD and non-disabled peers, the lowest was 1.06% with SwD suspended at a rate of 2.65%, and
the highest is 13.34% with SWD suspended at a rate of 25.26%. The medium difference was 5.13%. Results of 3rd Quarter discussions concluded the building level administrator
in the common factor in producing a high, low or medium percentage. Some districts with higher percentages reported that a change in building level administration, especially
at the high school level is a contributing factor. In the two districts (Anderson, Montgomery) where the superintendent established practices of reducing suspensions there has
been a lower suspension rate for both the SwD and non-disabled peers.

Directors reported suspensions of SwD were mainly at the MS and HS levels, however, suspensions of occurred at the elementary level.

Trend Data
Three observations were made using the district two year trend data from 07-08 to 08-09:
• 8 districts (Bourbon, Boyle, Fayette, Franklin, Montgomery, Nelson, Powell, and Scott) are making improvements by reducing the percentage of students suspension for both
non-disabled and SWD populations,
• 6 districts (Bardstown, Frankfort, Mercer, Nicholas, Paris, Woodford) are increasing suspension percentages for both non-disabled and SWD, and
• 6 districts (Clark, Danville, Harrison, Jessamine, Marion, Washington) are reducing suspension percentage for the non-disabled and increasing suspensions for SWD.
Suspension rates for SWD range from a low of 2.33% in KSD to a high of 25.26% in Frankfort Independent. 13 districts reported suspension rates of 11% and higher.

Root Causes

The three CKSEC districts meeting the target determined the following root causes, implementation of school wide positive behavior supports (KSD,
Anderson), and routine practice of monitoring suspension data and intervening proactively (KSD, Burgin).

Eight districts (Boyle, Franklin, Nicholas, Frankfort, Bardstown, Marion, Washington, Mercer) reported the root cause for not meeting as failure to
differentiate discipline practices based on individual needs of students with disabilities. Five districts (Woodford, Scott, Jessamine, Harrison, Danville)
determined the root cause for not meeting the state target to be failure to develop or implement appropriate alternatives to suspension. Four districts
(Bourbon, Powell, Fayette, Nelson) identified a lack of or inconsistent use of proactive, positive, instructional discipline approaches as their root cause.
Two districts (Woodford, Frankfort) identified the root cause as failure to monitor suspension data and intervene proactively for students with multiple
suspensions. Two districts identified other as the root causes, specified as, ineffective use of instructional time (Montgomery), and Methodist Home
located in the county (Woodford).

A review of the activities identified in district action plans indicates that nine districts plan to monitor suspension for SwD periodically (most monthly)
through IC, and discuss the results with superintendents, administrators, case managers, and/or ARC Chairpersons. Two larger districts (Jessamine,
Fayette) have targeted activities for specific schools which were identified with higher numbers of suspensions. Several districts’ plans for reducing
suspensions include addressing the individual needs of SwD through continuing or beginning programs using positive behavior supports, such as
PASS, KYCID, and Freshman Leadership Team.
