Kentucky Schools and COVID-19

Hats off to all of the school leaders who worked so diligently to turn their schools into online learning communities over night.  The creativity and tenacity was evident in the efforts made by school to recognize students and celebrate their accomplishments.  We would love for you to post some of your favorite pictures to the KAESP Facebook page.  We are hopeful that things may be back to semi-normal when students are scheduled to return to their schools in the fall.

Interim Commissioner Brown produces a weekly updates to the families in Kentucky.  It is always available on the Kentucky Department of Education website.  The Department is providing  families with recommendations to support their children during the summer and is exploring all possible alternatives for opening schools in the fall.  KAESP is appreciative of this support and guidance.  And, again, we thank school leaders, their staffs, and communities for their work in making this difficult situation work to the benefit of their students.


We are looking for elementary and middle level school leaders to serve as Representatives on our Board of Directors. Representatives serve as liaisons for the school leaders in their region. Representatives are key leaders in the association by recruiting members and promoting the association. If you are interested in serving on the board, please contact us at kaespky@gmail.com.
