The Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) set the vision to have every student taught by an effective teacher and every school led by an effective principal. Recognizing the value and significance of this premise, the Next Generation Professionals Delivery Plan is designed to guide the comprehensive implementation of a common statewide professional growth and effectiveness system, a human capital development and management strategy, and policy changes that will redefine the professional growth of educators to meet the college and career needs of all Kentucky’s children. The Next Generation Professionals Delivery Plan is anchored in the use of data and research to support teaching and learning conditions in every school in the Commonwealth.
There are two main targets for the Next Generation Professionals delivery plan. These will be baselined in 2015.
1) Increase the percentage of effective teachers from __% in 2015 to __% in 2020.
2) Increase the percentage of effective principals from __% in 2015 to __% in 2020.
The districts participating in the Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PGES) Field Test are depicted in the map above. There are currently 44 districts and more than 100 schools participating.
The Kentucky Department of Education has identified the following strategies to help districts and schools reach their annual delivery targets. More information on each strategy may be found in the Next Generation Professionals Delivery Plan.
