Student Growth

Published: 4/28/2017 12:54 PM

This page is currently undergoing updates to reflect the changes established in Senate Bill 1 (2017). Senate Bill 1, (effective immediately due to an emergency clause) brings significant change to Kentucky’s Professional Growth and Effectiveness System. It requires districts to implement a personnel evaluation system aligned to a statewide framework that promotes continuous professional growth and development of skills needed to be a highly effective teacher or administrator. If you have questions related to Principals and Student Growth, please contact Jim Freeman at (502) 564-1479.

Principals are responsible for setting two student growth goals: a State Contribution Goal and a Local Contribution Goal.

One goal will be based on a Kentucky Board of Education Goal/Next Generation Goal and will be considered State Contribution.

The other goal will be based on school need and will be considered the Local Contribution. The second goal may parallel the first or be completely separate.

One of the two goals must focus on the Gap population.
