Certified Evaluation for 2020-2021

In response to COVID related challenges schools currently face, the Kentucky Board of Education unanimously approved a waiver of the requirement that certified school personnel be informed of a local district's Certified Evaluation Plan (CEP) within the first 30 contractual days of the school year (704 KAR 3:370 Section 2 (g)).

This waiver provides school districts the flexibility to modify timelines, frequency, and other elements associated with the district's established procedures in the CEP. This relief allows districts the ability to mitigate issues related to virtual and remote instruction. While districts do have some flexibility to make revisions for one year, all minimum requirements for evaluation remain (KRS 156.557 and 704 KAR 3:370).

Any revisions to the CEP for the 2020-2021 school year should be submitted and approved by the local board of education prior to implementation.

For questions related to certified evaluation, please contact Todd Davis at or (502)564-5846.
