Central Kentucky Educational Cooperative

Membership in the Central Kentucky Educational Cooperative (CKEC) provides superintendents and staff of member districts with excellent opportunities to network with colleagues on a monthly basis at board meetings. Each month the members meet to discuss common issues that face their districts and learn about activities to enhance their school systems. Programs are designed with an emphasis on professional learning communities and delivered through scheduled sessions and C.E.O.-type cohorts.

CKEC also offers monthly meetings for professional development coordinators, food service directors, special education directors and other district leaders, to facilitate the continual development, implementation and assessment of activities aimed at enhancing student achievement and staff effectiveness.

CKEC also provides training opportunities for principals, counselors and teacher leaders. Other CKEC committees meet as required to address specific areas, needs or topics.
