The Kentucky Environmental Literacy Plan (KELP) describes Kentucky's planned aproach to improving the environmental literacy of all students. Information regarding the timeline and goals for implementation of the KELP are contained in the KELP Implementation Plan which is also available for download below.
The lens of environmental education offers a number of connections to the Common Core State Standards in both English Language Arts and Mathematics. The KELP Implementation Advisory Team created two correlation documents to help teachers understand how the Common Core State Standards compare with expectations found in the North American Association for Environmental Education Standards for Excellence in Learning (K-12). These correlation documents can be downloaded below.
