Parchment is thrilled to announce that the Commonwealth of Kentucky has trained and rolled out Parchment’s electronic transcript services to all of its public high schools. Current high school students may request their transcripts and other credentials, such as letters of reference, 24 hours a day, seven days a week through Parchment at no cost. Students can send directly to any of the state’s 44 public or private colleges and universities, and other participating schools worldwide with Parchment Send, which is fully integrated with Infinite Classroom, the state’s student information system (SIS).
The statewide eTranscript initiative is a joint project of the Kentucky Department of Education, Council on Post-secondary Education and Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority.The agencies worked together to streamline the request, delivery, monitoring, and processing of transcripts for their respective constituents and completed deployment of the Parchment platform in an unprecedented nine months.
“Our goal with the Kentucky initiative was two-fold: to help students achieve success and to support the diverse needs of the state educational agencies. The breadth and speed of this implementation is record breaking for Parchment. The Kentucky academic leaders are to be congratulated,” said Matthew Pittinsky, Parchment CEO.
All of Kentucky’s public and private postsecondary schools all use Parchment Receive to download and process transcript requests. Work continues to implement the Kentucky common transcript at all of the state’s private high schools.
