Many of the same schools rounded out the top and bottom of this year’s Kentucky Department of Education test score rankings in our region.

Dr. Dunn joined Chad Lampe for his monthly chat at WKMS last week. In this conversation Dr. Dunn discusses MSU's enrollment growth and hones in on some of the specifics, including an uptick in first time freshman students and significant growth in international student enrollment.

The results of the state's new tests for public school students could be delayed until November. Board of Education officials had originally said scores would be released sometime late October. The state Department of Education has been telling school districts and members of the public for months to expect the scores from the new K-PREP tests to be lower than the scores have been for the Commonwealth Accountability Testing System, or CATS, especially in math and reading.
