Transforming Education Kentucky

Transform Education Kentucky (TEK) exists to provide a connection between those that are willing to be involved in meaningful ways to truly change education and those who can make those changes happen. As an independent 501c3, TEK works outside the existing education system to find innovative tools and techniques to ensure that Kentucky students have greater success, cooperates with current leadership in the education community to ensure that the methods identified are practical and ensures all applicable parties are present in this work to lead the implementation of these valuable solutions.

Innovation Lab Network

The Innovation Lab Network connects schools, districts, and state education agencies working to identify new designs for public education that create real student-centered systems that empower each individual student to thrive as a productive learner, worker, and citizen. CCSSO facilitates this network of states, which includes Arkansas, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oregon, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin, to support programmatic, policy, and structure design work within each participating state and across the network. The network is a key element of CCSSO’s overall commitment to student-centered learning.


KnowledgeWorks is a national organization committed to providing every learner with meaningful personalized learning experiences that ensure success in college, career and civic life. With a presence in more than 30 states, they develop the capabilities of educators to implement and sustain competency-based and early college schools, partner with federal, state and district leaders to remove policy barriers that inhibit the growth of personalized learning and provide national thought leadership around the future of learning.

Center for Innovation in Education

The Center for Innovation in Education at the University of Kentucky contributes to the national education reform agenda with a focus on ensuring more states are adopting and implementing a standard definition of college and career readiness that embodies “deeper learning” outcomes, implementing meaningful measures of those outcomes, and holding all levels of the system accountable for results.
