Educator Development and Equity

Equitable Access to Effective Educators

Published: 3/5/2018 3:10 PM

Kentucky's Equitable Access to Effective Educators Plan was developed to address the need to improve equitable access to effective teachers and leaders. This plan is responsive to the requirement in Section 1111(b)(8)(C) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) that each state’s Title I, Part A plan include information on the 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.

Equity Lab: Recruitment and Retention of Effective Educators 

Please join us for a working and learning session focused on providing equitable access to effective educators through recruitment and retention. The 6-hour session, facilitated by KDE staff, will provide the opportunity for school teams to discuss how equity and human capital management are related and to strategize about ways to recruit and retain effective and diverse educators so that students experience increasingly positive outcomes. Teams will have the opportunity to work together and with other school teams to network and collaborate around human capital management challenges.  

For more information, contact or by email or phone at (502) 564-1479.  

Who should attend? 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.
