Reform Efforts

Teacher and Leadership Preparation:

Kentucky’s CEEDAR work is heavily focused on the incorporation of evidence-based practices (EBPs) in educator preparation programs (EPPs). Kentucky is currently developing a common knowledge base and coherent language of EBPs at the state, district, and university/college levels. In addition, EPPs are co-constructing partnerships with districts to ensure that pre-service educators are provided intentional, high-quality field/clinical experiences in diverse settings where EBPs are coherent and linked. They are utilizing the innovation configurations (ICs) and course enhancement modules (CEM) provided by CEEDAR to build consensus regarding EBPs and high-leverage practices (HLPs) among faculty and integrate EBPs and HLPs into all coursework across programs.

Building State Capacity to Support EPPs:

  • Annual KEEP Conference
  • State Topical Action Groups and Affinity Groups
  • Alignment with state initiatives and associations
