Indicator (a)(1) The number and percentage of core academic courses taught, in the highest-poverty and lowest-poverty schools, by teachers who are highly qualified consistent with section 9101(23) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA)

Indicator (a)(2) Whether the State’s Teacher Equity Plan (as part of the State’s Highly Qualified Teacher Plan) fully reflects the steps the State is currently taking to ensure that students from low-income families and minority students are not taught at higher rates than other students by inexperienced, unqualified, or out-of-field teachers (as required in section 1111(b)(8)(C) of the ESEA)

* Indicator (a)(3) For each LEA in the state, whether the systems used to evaluate the performance of teachers include student achievement outcomes or student growth data as an evaluation criterion

* Indicator (a)(4) If the district’s teachers receive performance ratings or levels through an evaluation system, the number and percentage of teachers rated at each performance rating or level

* Indicator (a)(5) If the district’s teachers receive performance ratings or levels through an evaluation system, whether the number and percentage of teachers rated at each performance rating or level are publicly reported for each school in the LEA

* Indicator (a)(6) Whether the systems used to evaluate the performance of principals include student achievement outcomes or student growth data as an evaluation criterion

* Indicator (a)(7) If the district’s principals receive performance ratings or levels through an evaluation system, the number and percentage of principals rated at each performance rating or level

* Descriptor (a)(1) The systems used to evaluate the performance of teachers and the use of results from those systems in decisions regarding teacher development, compensation, promotion, retention, and removal

* Descriptor (a)(2) The systems used to evaluate the performance of principals and the use of results from those systems in decisions regarding teacher development, compensation, promotion, retention, and removal

*Because the Kentucky Department of Education has an approved No Child Left Behind waiver request, Kentucky is no longer required to report this data.
