Educator Preparation

The Division of Educator Preparation ensures that preparation programs for Kentucky educators meet established standards of quality. It facilitates the accreditation process, reviews programs and continuous assessment materials, and provides technical assistance for program improvement. It also coordinates the review of university-based alternative route to certification programs and is responsible for emergency program review. The Division of Educator Preparation also manages the Cooperating Teacher Payment Program which provides financial compensation for Kentucky teachers who supervise student teachers.

The EPSB Teacher Preparation Dashboard provides information regarding institutional selectivity of candidates, the performance of candidates on required new teacher assessments, the percent of candidates who achieve full certification in Kentucky, and the results of surveys of candidates and their supervisors regarding the effectiveness of the candidate's preparation. The DDB can be found by selecting this link: EPSB DDB.
