The Kentucky Plan for Improving the Professional Performance of School Personnel: The State Overview.
Newton, Fred B.
In December 1973, the Committee to Improve Performance of School Personnel was established. The task of the Committee was to create an effective system of improving professional performance which could be put into practice in any school situation in Kentucky, a system which could be utilized with all professional staff members whether they be classroom teachers, administrators, or other professional personnel. A State Board Regulation was passed on September 10, 1975, which required each local board of education to provide for the involvement of every professional school employee in an individualized program of self-evaluation and performance improvement through the application of the Kentucky Plan. The Kentucky Plan is designed to assist in the development of a system tailored to the particular needs of a school district. For successful implementation of the Kentucky Plan, there must be harmony between participating parties in the development of local school district plans. The resources of the State Department of Education and the Educational Regions must be effectively utilizing to provide the necessary skills needed in a program of this magnitude. The Educational Region is designed to provide ancillary service to the local school districts under the approval of the State Department of Education. The Educational Region can be an effective delivery system in the implementation of the Kentucky Plan. Professional organizations and higher education must also be involved in its implementation.
