Legislative recap

May 2022

The 2022 legislative session resulted in a mix of wins and losses for public education in Kentucky. Wins included increased SEEK funding, full-day kindergarten funding, increased transportation funding, funding for career and technical education, aligning principal hiring and curriculum selection with the district chain of command and reducing red-tape for school construction projects.

But in the loss column, lawmakers voted to fund charter schools by not only allocating state SEEK funds, but local tax dollars. Charter schools required to be approved in two areas of the state and lawmakers stripped authority from the school board governing the state’s largest district.
