Education Commissioner Stephen Pruitt plans to conduct town hall meetings across the state to gather input to assist the Kentucky Department of Education in designing a new accountability system. It is my goal to collaborate with legislators, educators, students and the public to produce a system that is fair, reliable, valid and simpler.

Commissioner Pruitt will be embarking on an 11-stop listening tour across the state. You are invited to attend one or more of the sessions, “Education Town Hall Meetings: How does Kentucky define school success?” For those who may not be able to attend a meeting in person, an online meeting will be offered at a later date. 

Below is a list of the meetings and their locations. Each meeting will run from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. local time.
