The Kentucky Association of School Councils was formed in 1992 when presidents of the Kentucky PTA, Kentucky Education Association, and Kentucky Association of School Administrators appointed initial leaders.
Over the years, we have developed a strong reputation for building the capacity of school leadership teams as well as developing training and tools to help schools and districts improve student achievement.
Our membership includes 800 school councils from across the state as well as nearly 100 individuals who support school-based decision-making and hold associate memberships.
Our board of directors includes a parent, teacher, and principal from each of the eight regions of the state. Directors are elected by delegates chosen by member schools. Delegates meet at our annual conference each fall, the largest school council gathering in the state.
From our office in Danville, our talented staff develops a wide range of workshops, professional development, products, tools and informational updates on a variety of topics related to council responsibility and school proficiency.
As an organization, we try to embody the shared decision-making approach we encourage councils to follow. Through true teamwork, we feel like every staff member can make an important contribution and have a meaningful voice in our direction and success.
We also emphasize a diligent approach to our mission of giving members top-quality service in a quick and friendly manner. We look for practical solutions and proven results that also help build and expand partnerships.
