Kentucky Association of School Administrators and The Center for Education Leadership is the KDE approved provider for Certified Evaluation Training. KASA will be conducting initial evaluator training in multiple locations and dates during the 2016-2017 school year.  The two-day training and testing is required according to KRS 156.557 and 704 KAR 3:370 for all new evaluators of certified personnel below the level of superintendent before completing the summative process.

The Initial Evaluator Training involves a variety of instructional strategies that will engage participants in the proper techniques for effectively evaluating certified school employees.  It is designed to initially approve instructional leaders as evaluators of certified staff.  Upon completion of this two-day training, participants will receive twelve (12) hours of Effective Instructional Leadership Credit (EILA).     

(Evaluators of certified teachers and other professionals must also complete an additional training, currently provided by Frontline Technologies (formerly Teachscape) to be qualified to conduct classroom evaluations.
