Kentucky Teacher Professional Development

Continuing Education Option (CEO) Guidelines for Kentucky Teachers

Kentucky teachers have several options for their continuing education needs. After receiving a 5-year teaching certificate, teachers must verify that they have at least three years of full time teaching experience within the past 5 years and show completion of 15 graduate hours OR fulfill half of the CEO (Continuing Education Option) requirements (See Read More for more information Here).

Continuing Education Option (CEO)
The CEO requires candidates to submit an independent professional growth plan based on their needs.  This includes classes, professional development, and other PD activities.  These opportunities may include online professional development courses such as Model Teaching courses. Please use the Request Approval form to request approval to use a Model Teaching course as part of your CEO plan.

  • Use our Request Approval form to request approval for a Model Teaching course to be used to satisfy your state’s professional development requirements.
  • Receive a Certificate of Completion at the conclusion of the course, documenting course clock hours and micro-credential badges.
  • Subscribe for one year of access to all available online courses or learn more about our online professional development courses

Continuing Education Option (CEO)
Kentucky's state legislators and educators developed the Continuing Education Option (CEO) for rank change and certificate renewal as an alternative to a planned fifth-year program college course of studies. The initiative, that resulted from the 1996 General Assembly House Bill 305, is structured to link teachers' professional growth with positive, measurable improvement in student learning. Built around the Kentucky Teacher Standards adopted by the Education Professional Standards Board (EPSB), the CEO requires candidates to submit an independent professional growth plan based on the needs of the teacher, the students, and the school. The professional growth plan is a unique independent study that includes graduate level classes, professional development experiences, research, reading, and shadowing other professionals.
Candidates create job-embedded CEO Plans based on the needs of their schools, districts, and communities. Each candidate is required to create a portfolio representing successful completion of his or her plan. Although the CEO is an independent study, throughout the process candidates receive support through online resources and by participating in face-to-face regional monthly cohort meetings offered across the state. Cohorts are supported by experienced educational professionals (coaches) in a blended learning environment integrating traditional learning with technology to provide a technology enhanced independent learning experience.
The benefits of successful completion of the CEO program are far reaching. The teacher candidate completes a self-assessment to identify his or her own areas for growth and matches them to specific local district and classroom needs. The structures of the CEO Plan and CEO Portfolio are based on candidates' professional needs, goals, objectives, and activities. To address the full scope of the Kentucky Teacher Standards, some of these professional needs, goals, objectives, and activities are teacher-centered, some are student-centered, and some focus on leadership. As a result, each completed CEO program will bring new resources and experiences into the candidate's classroom, school and district.
