CKEC is Pleased to Announce On Demand Modules

Are you looking for some professional learning opportunities that you can take on your own? Be sure to check out CKEC’s growing list of On Demand Modules. You can find the available sessions here.

CKEC Virtual Recruitment Fair

You can find the list here

One of our most important missions at Central Kentucky Educational Cooperative (CKEC) is providing opportunities for professional networking, so we want to introduce you to some of the best districts in the Commonwealth of Kentucky – the member districts of CKEC. 

This document contains links to all of the CKEC member districts’ employment pages.  On each page, you’ll find a list of openings, salary schedules, applications and in some cases, recruitment videos.  It’s not quite the same thing as the live recruitment fair we normally host – there won’t be snacks and swag, but you will have all of the same opportunities.

We wish you the best in finding employment, and we hope you will look to us at CKEC for training and professional resources in the future. You can find the list of districts and their sites here.

COVID-19 Update:

After hearing the urging of the governor to lead by example, we are going to close the CKEC office for daily work.  We are committed to continuing our services and to provide resources during this difficult time. Directors will be coming and going in the office as needed.  Secretaries will be checking mail weekly and leaving paperwork for me to sign as needed.  Office phones will be transferred to personal cell numbers. As always, if you need immediate assistance, please reach out via email or personal cell numbers.
