Chartered nonpublic schools planning to administer KRA must register by March 31


Chartered nonpublic schools can administer the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment (KRA) to enrolled kindergarten students. The materials, training and supports are available at no cost to any school that signs an agreement with the Ohio Department of Education. The law requires such a school to notify the superintendent of public instruction, no later than March 31, 2019, of its intent to administer the KRA for the 2019-2020 school year.
To use the KRA in fall 2019, complete the survey questions here. Completing the survey does not commit a school to using the KRA in classrooms, but it will meet the requirement for notification and begin the next steps. The survey will remain open through March 31, 2019.
Contact Sarah McClusky, assistant director of Curriculum and Assessment, with questions about the survey or Ohio’s Kindergarten Readiness Assessment.
The Department will provide more details and resources to help schools with the KRA administration in April 2019.
