This page is currently undergoing updates to reflect the changes established in Senate Bill 1 (2017). Senate Bill 1, (effective immediately due to an emergency clause) brings significant change to Kentucky’s Professional Growth and Effectiveness System. It requires districts to implement a personnel evaluation system aligned to a statewide framework that promotes continuous professional growth and development of skills needed to be a highly effective teacher or administrator. If you have questions related to the Student Voice Survey, please contact Zack Marinelli at (502) 564-1479.
Student Voice is an opportunity for teachers to receive feedback from students related to their learning experiences.
The survey asks questions of students that assess seven constructs of student engagement targets: support, transparency, understanding, discipline, engagement, nurture, and trust.
As a required component of the Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PGES), the annual student voice survey provides formative evidences for teacher reflection in order to improve classroom culture and instructional practices.
Beyond the implementation of the annual Student Voice Survey, teachers may conduct additional student perception surveys throughout the year. Infinite Campus is the state provided mode of implementation. Other modes could include paper/pencil, online/digital surveys, and Scantron. The Certified Evaluation Plan (CEP) provides guidance specific to each district.
