  • Equitable Access to Effective Educators

    Kentucky's Equitable Access to Effective Educators Plan was developed to address the need to improve equitable access to effective teachers and leaders. This plan is responsive to the requirement in Section 1111(b)(8)(C) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) that each state’s Title I, Part A plan include information on the strategies Kentucky will employ to ensure that poor, minority, Limited English Proficient, and special needs students are not taught at higher rates than other children by inexperienced, unqualified, or out-of-field teachers.
  • Teacher Leadership

    Teacher leaders need to work together and work with others to be able to highlight features of effective pedagogical practice, label productive and unproductive relationships with key stakeholders, and produce artifacts from their leadership efforts that others can use to find their way to change and improvement.

    This page is intended to provide resources and information for schools and districts to increase teacher leadership.
