FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Kentucky education officials are seeking feedback on the state’s new reading and math competency requirements for high school graduation.

A statement from the Education Department says Education Commissioner Wayne Lewis and staff are holding four town hall forums, an online forum and will also take electronic feedback from those who can’t attend.

The first forum was held September 23 in Shelbyville. Others are planned on October 10 in Hazard, October 15 in Bowling Green and October 30 in Hopkinsville.

Officials say they are seeking feedback only on the new reading and math standards which require students to show basic competency in those subjects.
