Applications are being accepted for the Kentucky Network to Transform Teaching’s Classroom Teachers Enacting Positive Solutions (CTEPS) program. The program is a year-long, compensated professional learning experience in which teachers can work with colleagues from around the state to propose, implement and reflect on solutions to the challenges they face in their classrooms.

CTEPS, which is open to full-time or hybrid classroom teachers and library media specialists, gives teachers the skills and knowledge necessary to emerge with confidence and take on leadership at many levels. Based on the Kentucky Teacher Leadership Skills Framework, teachers engage with self-assessment tools as well as content-driven webinars that challenge them to grow as coaches, facilitators, community builders, writers and collaborators.

Participants will collaborate throughout the 2016-17 school year to create, research, implement and reflect on a plan to remove barriers to student learning. Participants must attend twice-monthly webinars beginning Sept. 12 and three in-person meetings.

The deadline for applications is Aug. 20. For more information and to sign up for the Q&A session, visit the CTEPS webpage here.
