Leadership Networks
The system of Leadership Networks in Kentucky has been designed to support the quality implementation of the requirements set forth in Senate Bill 1 (2009). Specifically, the networks are intended to build the capacity of each district in the Commonwealth as they implement Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS), develop assessment literacy among all educators, and work toward ensuring that every student is college and career ready. To that end, the vision for these networks is: Every school district in the Commonwealth of Kentucky has a knowledgeable and cohesive leadership team that guides the professional learning and practice of all administrators, teachers, and staff so that every student experiences highly effective teaching, learning, and assessment practices in every classroom, every day. (Result: Proficient and Prepared for Success!)
