Project TRREE 2009-2010 Annual Report
Atwell, Nedra
Online Submission
Project TRREE (Teacher Recruitment and Retention for Educational Excellence) is a federally funded project conducted by the Kentucky Department of Education. The purpose of the project is to develop a systemic approach to increase the number of highly qualified special education teachers with a focus on recruitment of linguistically, culturally and ethnically diverse educators. Every child in Kentucky deserves a well-qualified teacher. Today, with few exceptions, teacher educators, school administrators and policy makers recognize the impact that great teachers have on the students they teach. Research indicates that teacher quality is the most important indicator of student performance--more than class size, economic status, or other commonly cited indicators. But there's a problem. Kentucky's public schools are facing a teacher quality crisis due in part to the inability to recruit, retain, and fairly distribute the qualified and diverse teachers our schools need. Appendixes include: (1) Implementation Team Plan for the Recruitment of Special Education: Teachers Mission Statement; (2) Implementation Team Plan for the Preparation of Special Education Teachers: Focus Area--Preparation; (3) Implementation Team Plan for the Preparation of Special Education Teachers: Retention Group and PD for Special Education Teachers - Retention; and (4) End-of-Program Report--Beecher Terrace Spring and Summer Enrichment Program (BTSSEP).
