Regional Academies

From closing achievement gaps to making sure all students are learning at a high-level, KASC’s February and March academies are your road to success!


Because of high demand, we have added an additional session to the February Lexington academy, to be held at the same time. 

We have also added dates for our newest sessions, Targeting the Disability Achievement Gap and Reducing Novice Performance in Schools, for March!

Academy Sessions

NEW! TARGETING THE DISABILITY ACHIEVEMENT GAP — Schools continuously target specific gap populations, but the disability gap is not closing fast enough for students to meet standards. In this 3-hour session, participants will explore common factors that have created opportunity gaps in schools and gain an understanding of how to address those. This interactive workshop will provide instructional strategies that have been proven effective for students with disabilities.

“Many students have barriers that decrease their opportunities for success in school. It is our responsibility as educators to identify these opportunity gaps and create detours for individual students around these road blocks to learning. This KASC professional learning session provided time for administrators and teachers to engage in learning about:

  1. Why students struggle
  2. Guidelines for effective learning
  3. Instructional strategies that benefit ALL students.”

Greenup County Superintendent, Sherry Horsley



REDUCING NOVICE PERFORMANCE IN SCHOOLS — This session is newly designed for all educators to explore how schools can reduce novice performance and raise achievement for all students. Leave this workshop with specific strategies that can be implemented immediately. Participants will engage in activities to answer the following key questions:

  • Why do we need to reduce novice performance?
  • Why should we believe all students can learn and perform at high levels?
  • What are schools expected to do?
  • How can my school lead in this effort?
  • What are the specific ingredients necessary for my school to experience successful change?
  • What strategies can I implement tomorrow?
