Council on Postsecondary Education
REGISTRATION OPENS FOR FREE WORKSHOPS ON SENATE BILL 1
Free informational workshops on Senate Bill 1 (2009) and the impact on classroom instruction will be held at locations across the state and via webinars beginning later this month. The workshops are designed for postsecondary faculty, staff and administrators, as well as P-12 educators.
SB 1 calls for higher and more rigorous learning standards to ensure Kentuckians graduate from high school ready for college or career, and revises the assessment and accountability system for P‐12 education. The bill also calls for collaboration among postsecondary institutions to accomplish these goals.
The workshops are sponsored by the Council on Postsecondary Education, in collaboration with the Kentucky Association of Colleges of Teacher Education, the Collaborative Center for Literacy, the Kentucky Center for Mathematics, and the University of Kentucky’s P-20 College and Career Readiness Lab.

Kentucky’s postsecondary and adult education system is improving the economic vitality of the Commonwealth and the lives of Kentuckians. By raising educational attainment, Kentucky will attract higher wage and knowledge-based business and industry. The overall quality of life for Kentuckians will improve with higher incomes and levels of employment, better health, less obesity, more volunteerism, and lower crime and public assistance.
