FRANKFORT – A new app for iPhones, iPads and iPods compiles content from the Kentucky Department of Education to enhance communications on education-related matters across the state.

The free KDE News app is available through iTunes at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/kde-news/id540050869?ls=1&mt=8. The app is designed to provide users with immediate access to many items housed on the KDE website, including:

  • Kentucky Teacher Magazine
  • Messages to Superintendents and Teachers
  • Headlines
  • Education Commissioner Terry Holliday’s Blog
  • Videos
  • Kentucky Education Technology System (KETS) Tech Tips
  • Photo Gallery

This app is the latest in a line of technology products from KDE to help the agency share information and provide transparency. A Windows Mobile version of the app also is in development.

The Kentucky Department of Education is a service agency of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. KDE provides resources and guidance to Kentucky’s public schools and districts as they implement the state’s P-12 education requirements. The department also serves as the state liaison for federal education requirements and funding opportunities.

KDE’s mission is to prepare all Kentucky students for next-generation learning, work and citizenship by engaging schools, districts, families and communities through excellent leadership, service and support.
