The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) and Cognia are accepting applications for Diagnostic Review team members to serve during the 2022-2023 school year.

Distinguished practitioners support the Diagnostic Review process by serving alongside KDE and Cognia staff to examine school/system data, leadership, learning conditions, policies, practices, curriculum and culture that promote student learning. By using current practitioners – those who are currently serving or have served within the past three years – statewide leadership capacity is built to accelerate student performance, enhance school and system effectiveness and realize a common strategic goal of college and career readiness for every student.

Practitioners eligible to serve include the following:

  • Principals, assistant principals, all school-level administrators, supervisors, coaches;
  • Superintendents, assistant superintendents, all district-level administrators, supervisors, directors;
  • Teachers;
  • Parents or legal guardians; and
  • University representatives.

Diagnostic Reviews are three-day, on-site visits and team members are expected to stay on site for the entirety of the review. To apply, please complete the Smartsheet form. If you have questions, please email Natasha Stein or Ruth Swanson.
