Certified Evaluation Planning

Published: 6/22/2018 2:55 PM

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 is responsible for developing a CEP that clearly defines the processes and procedures to evaluate all certified personnel below the level of superintendent. The 50/50 committee develops and submits the plan to the local board of education for approval as well as to the KDE for final approval prior to implementation (KRS 156:557, 704 KAR 3:370).


Recommended CEP Submission Process

  • On or before May 15, obtain approval of the CEP from the local board of education

  • May 15-June 15, submit the locally-approved CEP to KDE

  • Within approximately seven (7) work days of submission to KDE, receive response from  KDE

    • If the CEP does not meet the requirements of KRS 156.557 and 704 KAR 3:370, detailed feedback will be provided upon the return to the district.

  • Revise and resubmit CEP to local board and KDE for approval

    • Remember that the CEP must be reviewed with all district certified personnel within the first thirty (30) calendar days of reporting for employment
