Thank you for visiting the KAESP Website!

KAESP is an affiliate of the National Association of Elementary Schools Principals (NAESP) and the Kentucky Association of School Administrators (KASA).


KAESP wants to introduce you to a new KAESP Sponsor. ZoomQ is a web-based app that makes it easy for guardians and school and daycare staff to dismiss children safely and efficiently at the end of the day!  ZoomQ allows guardians to control who can pick up children and to initiate pickups creating staffing flexibility for schools.  ZoomQ uses an advanced QView screen to display arrivals on a screen, monitor, tablet, or smartphone so teachers and staff can quickly gather and efficiently release children to the appropriate car.   Please visit their website at: https://www.zoomq.com/ and see how they can help keep your students safe.
