Kentucky school districts must meet the following eligibility requirements to be considered for the CEA pilot program:
Districts must show a track record of quality implementation of former and current accountability policies.
Districts must demonstrate significant shareholder engagement and interest in providing all students with the option for a competency-based education and assessment system.
Districts must show evidence of the capacity to implement the planned approach with fidelity during the three-year period of the pilot, and the willingness to scale the approach system-wide over a seven-year period of time.
Districts must commit to the creation and use of Anchor Competencies developed by participating districts; and agree to the adoption of all characteristics of competency-based education and assessment used by the pilot and its participating districts.

As a result of input provided by the Educational Innovations Work Group during the development of Kentuckys new accountability system and as indicated in Senate Bill 1 (2017), the state is adopting an expanded view of assessment and accountability.
