To gather input on long-term aspirations for the Commonwealth’s education system, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) is excited to announce that Commissioner of Education and Chief Learner Jason E Glass will be conducting a virtual listening tour April 6-May 6.

Nine sessions will be held across the state, one in each cooperative region and one in Louisville. Sessions will be in the evening and will last approximately 90 minutes.

“I hope to see many stakeholders engaged in these virtual meetings and I look forward to the rich dialogue that will inform our continuous improvement efforts," Glass said.

KDE is in the early planning phases of this work and more information will be released in the coming weeks.
