As required by the United States Department of Education (USDOE), Kentucky is submitting guidelines for local teacher and principal evaluation and support systems and any amendments to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act’s (ESEA’s) waiver Principle 3: Supporting Effective Instruction and Leadership.
This requirement is related to Kentucky’s receipt of flexibility under the ESEA/No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act. The guidelines and proposed amendments will undergo peer review by USDOE this summer.
To see the document containing the guidelines and proposed amendments click here, and scroll to the the bottom of the page. The public is encouraged to comment, and comments may be sent to Mary Ann Miller at email@example.com by close of business on Friday, July 6. Comments will be passed on to USDOE as well as considered by KDE as we finalize the amendments to Principle 3 during this summer’s peer review.
