Purpose: The Teachers Advisory Council (TAC) is designed to improve the educational landscape of Kentucky by providing Kentucky’s Commissioner of Education with direct input from Kentucky’s classrooms. Bridging the gap between policy and practice, the TAC was created to advise the commissioner on educational priorities so that Kentucky’s students are well-prepared for any career they choose. The ultimate goal is effective teaching in every school, every classroom, every day.
Membership: The TAC is comprised of approximately twenty (20) teacher leaders from across the Commonwealth who contribute crucial, diverse perspectives on education. The TAC members should have instructional expertise in various disciplines, grade bands, and areas of specialization that represent Kentucky’s varied student population. Teachers are selected and appointed to the TAC for 3-year terms and attend 3-4 face-to-face meetings in Frankfort each school year.
