A key focus for Kentucky is preparing each student for college/career. One aspect of Kentucky’s accountability system is the Educational Planning and Assessment System (EPAS). The EPAS was developed by ACT, Inc. in response to the need for all students to be prepared for high school and the transitions they make after graduation.
EPAS provides a longitudinal, systematic approach to education and career planning, assessment, instructional support, and evaluation. It focuses on a number of key transition points that young people face.
