Certified Evaluation Planning
A local Certified Evaluation Plan (CEP) outlines procedures and contains forms needed to evaluate certified personnel below the level of superintendent in Kentucky public schools. A local CEP is developed by an evaluation committee (also known as a 50/50 committee) to meet all the requirements of the Kentucky Framework for Personnel Evaluation (704 KAR 3:370). An evaluation committee, comprised of 50% teachers and other professionals and 50% administrators, is responsible for developing a CEP that clearly defines how all certified personnel below the level of superintendent are evaluated. The 50/50 committee develops and submits the plan to the local board of education for review and approval prior to implementation (KRS 156:557, proposed 704 KAR 3:370).

Kentucky Framework for Personnel Evaluation
With the passage of KRS 156:557 (Senate Bill 1 of 2017), sweeping changes related to certified evaluation in Kentucky and the development of local CEPs were initiated. In consultation with the Principal and Teacher Effectiveness Steering Committees, the Kentucky Department of Education drafted proposed regulation establishing a Statewide Framework for Personnel Evaluation to guide the development of local district CEPs. During the current legislative process, district 50/50 committees are encouraged to confer, plan and begin development of CEPs in preparation for the 2018-19 school year.
