Students in a Kentucky school district will be able to use a digital tool next year to monitor if they are on track to graduate or start a career. The "Backpack of Success Skills" will hold evidence of their progress, including test scores, photos, essays, videos and more, and students will use that evidence at the end of fifth, eighth and 12th grades to make the case they are ready to advance.
