KACTE leadership academy open to CTE teacher leaders


The Kentucky Association for Career and Technical Education (KACTE) is accepting applications for its TALENTS (Teachers As Leaders – Empowering New Thinking Skills) Leadership Academy, which is designed to strengthen personal and professional leadership ability among its members and the entire career and technical education (CTE) community. Academy graduates serve in leadership roles in their schools and communities, with professional associations and with the Kentucky Department of Education’s Office of Career and Technical Education and Student Transition.

The 2019-2020 academy will focus on three goals for participants: excellence in the classroom, leadership at school and advocacy within the community. Participants also have the option of obtaining three hours of graduate credit through Western Kentucky University.

The academy includes three in-person sessions: Sept. 6-7 in Bowling Green, Jan. 10-11 in Georgetown and July 26-29, 2020, at the KACTE Annual Summer Conference.

The academy is limited to 25 participants. Full and partial scholarships are available. Visit KACTE’s website or email Michael Stone for more information.
