The results of the state's new tests for public school students will be delayed until possibly November.

Officials at the state Board of Education meeting in Frankfort on Tuesday said results may not be released until Oct. 30 or Oct. 31, and possibly into the first week of November.

Officials had originally said scores would be released sometime late October. The state Department of Education has been telling school districts and members of the public for months to expect the scores from the new K-PREP tests to be lower than the scores have been for the Commonwealth Accountability Testing System, or CATS, especially in math and reading. That's because the K-PREP tests are based on new benchmarks.

The department says parents will receive their children's scores about two weeks after the public release.
