Because Kentucky public schools are extending their use of NTI days through April 20th or longer, your district’s timeline insuring that graduating seniors have completed all necessary requirements for graduation may be impacted.
One requirement to consider is each graduating student’s successful completion of the mandatory Civics Test.
The Kentucky Department of Education’s Civics Test webpage, offers guidance regarding amending board policy in regards to administering the Civics test as well as a resource for testing during NTI days.
The Digital Drivers License, linked to the KDE Civics Test webpage, is available for your consideration.

Online Professional Learning
Digital Promise’s platform has micro-credentials from many different issuers available for educators from all content areas and grade levels. Some micro-credentials are even appropriate for administrators.
- Micro-credentials are a digital form of certification indicating that a person has demonstrated competency in a specific skill, such as data literacy, teacher leadership, or growth mindset.
- Rather than learning by watching, reading, or listening alone, micro-credentials promote learning by doing.
- Educators apply their learnings in their practice and collect evidence, thereby demonstrating their competence.
Users can make a free account that makes applying for the micro-credentials a simple, seamless process.
KVEC is currently developing micro-credentials, hosted by Digital Promise, and is supporting schools in developing systems for personalized professional learning that include micro-credentials.
