Extractions: This January, the Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board launched its Teacher Certification Inquiry (TCI) service. This web-based system allows a user to search the certification and endorsement records of all teachers and administrators in the state. Users can search the system by the teacher's or administrator's name, the school's name, or the district's name. A query to the system will render the educators' active certificates and endorsements as well as a listing of the jobs the educator is qualified to fill by virtue of that certification. Since its creation, the site has had almost 35,000 queries. While not a primary reason for developing the TCI, the system can be used by the Education Professional Standards Board, parents, and other interested stakeholders in the system to ensure that teachers are being properly assigned to classes. (Assigning teachers to teach outside their field of certification is against the law in Kentucky, and proper teacher assignment is one element of the Kentucky state report card.) Each year the Professional Standards Board conducts an audit of districts to ensure correct assignment, a process that is considerably streamlined through the use of this database. If a parent suspects that a teacher is teaching out-of-field, he or she can look up the teacher's certification and endorsement standing via the website. If a suspected discrepancy is not resolved through the query, then an anonymous tip can be submitted to the Professional Standards Board. The Standards Board then investigates to ensure compliance to state law.

Extractions: Report 1, 1994 Previous section Next section Contents Pathways home page Collaboration is never easy. But in times of tight financial constraints collaboration is especially difficult. State education and higher education agencies currently compete with each other for scarce public resources. This competition is part of what keeps them apart. The history of their development also separates state education from higher education. Each bears the baggage of its own traditional missions and roles. Many education reformers may argue that time and the present needs of society have blurred the distinctions between the services that the two sectors provide. However, many within the education community identify a clear dichotomy of duty: a compulsory and universal public K-12 education for America's children up to a certain age and a voluntary and to some degree selective postsecondary education system for those seeking advanced educational skills and/or entry into professional career ranks. Data on students progressing through the public schools and the public postsecondary institutions are collected separately. The data are often incompatible, which inhibits collaborative policy planning. The way in which public K-12 education and public postsecondary education are financed also divide the sectors. Public schools are wholly financed through tax dollars, while higher education receives funding from multiple sources: state revenues, federal funds for research and student financial aid, private sector research, students, and private donors. Competition and cost both influence the selection process in postsecondary institutions.

Extractions: TO GET INVOLVED IN HISTORIC PRESERVATION IN KENTUCKY W elcome to the Kentucky Heritage Council Home Page. The mandate of the Kentucky Heritage Council is to identify, preserve, and protect the cultural resources of Kentucky. The Council also maintains continually updated inventories of historic structures and archaeological sites and nominates properties to the National Register of Historic Places. By working with other state and federal agencies, local communities, and interested citizens, the Council seeks to build a greater awareness of Kentucky's past and to encourage the long-term preservation of Kentucky's significant cultural resources. Through its various programs the Council strives to show how historic resources contribute to the heritage, economy, and quality of life of all Kentuckians. For more than 15,000 years, Kentucky was intensively occupied by American Indian groups. The villages, campsites and discarded artifacts of these prehistoric inhabitants may be found throughout the Commonwealth. As one of the early frontier states, Kentucky was a wilderness beyond the Cumberland Gap to be explored and settled in the 18th century. It joined the union in 1792 as the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the nation's 15th state. Tangible reminders of this past are everywhere: in the agricultural region of the Purchase and Pennyrile areas, in the coal mining towns of the eastern and western coal fields, in the urban and industrial centers along the Ohio River, and in the horse farms of the Bluegrass Region.
Extractions: TSSA Draft (v4.0) The Collaborative for Technology Standards for School Administrators (TSSA Collaborative) has facilitated the development of a national consensus on what P-12 administrators should know and be able to do to optimize the effective use of technology. This consensus is presented by the Collaborative (November 2001) as Technology Standards for School Administrators (TSSA). The Collaborative believes that comprehensive implementation of technology is, in itself, large-scale systemic reform. Leadership plays a key role in successful school reform. The CollaborativeÕs standards, therefore, focus on the role of leadership in enhancing learning and school operations through the use of technology. These standards are indicators of effective leadership for technology in schools. They define neither the minimum nor maximum level of knowledge and skills required of a leader, and are neither a comprehensive list nor a guaranteed recipe for effective technology leadership. Rather, these standards are a national consensus among educational stakeholders of what best indicates accomplished school leadership for comprehensive and effective use of technology in schools. The standards challenge almost every school administrator in some areas, yet each individual standard is attainable by the professional education leader. Although a national consensus, in no way should these standards inhibit new development, innovation, or progress for schools or for school leadership.
