As a result of Kenucky's desire to increase the recruitment and retention of a diverse educator workforce, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE), the Kentucky Alliance of Black School Educators (KABSE), and Western Kentucky University (WKU) formed a collaborative union to identify and prepare minority teachers to become certified administrators in the Commonwealth of Kentucky(KRS: 161.165).
KDE provides funding, support staff and consultants for the program. WKU is responsible for curriculum development and delivery as well as providing release time for the program director. KABSE provides professional support and mentorship. Upon completion of this uniquely structured education leadership program, participants will be eligible for the Professional Certificate for Instructional Leadership (Principal, All Grades, All Levels).
