The Kentucky Framework for Teaching: Specialist Frameworks for Other Professionals are designed for the unique professional responsibilities of these specialists. Each framework consists of research-based sets of components of practice that are consistent with the Kentucky Framework for Teaching. Like the KyFfT, instructional practices are divided into multiple standards clustered into four domains of responsibility:
1. Planning and Preparation
2. The Environment
3. Delivery of Service
4. Professional Responsibilities
The frameworks stand as the critical rubric for providing other professionals and evaluators with concrete descriptions of practice associated with specific domains.
