Each and every student in the Commonwealth deserves access to excellent educators, educators who have the unique experiences, quality preparation and commitment to their success. The Kentucky Department of Education is committed to developing initiatives that address the need to improve equitable access to effective teachers and leaders across the state. Section 1111(g)(1)(B) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) outlines strategies Kentucky will employ to ensure that poor, minority, Limited English Proficient, and special needs students are not taught at higher rates than other children by inexperienced, unqualified, or out-of-field teachers.
The 6-hour self-guided virtual session provides the opportunity for school teams to discuss the meaning of equity and to improve policies, practices and procedures so that students and educators experience increasingly positive outcomes.
Who should participate? 3-5 member school teams, including at least a principal, a teacher, and a school/district human resource administrator; optional team members include a parent, an SBDM member, or other school-based personnel.
