Kentucky Framework for Teaching (KyFft) and Specialist Framework website
Teacher

The Kentucky Framework for Teaching (KyFfT) is a foundational document for Kentucky educators. The research-based components of instruction were adapted from Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching (2012), are aligned to the INTASC standards, and are grounded in a constructivist view of learning and teaching. 

The KyFfT divides the complex activity of teaching into multiple standards clustered into four domains of teaching responsibility:

1. Planning and Preparation
2. Classroom Environment
3. Instruction
4. Professional Responsibilities

The Framework provides the critical rubric for educator growth and evaluation, detailing the concrete descriptions of practice associated with the four domains.

The KyFfT complements the Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS), KDE’s Characteristics of Highly Effective Teaching and Learning (CHETL), and the Kentucky Teacher Standards.

Other Professional

The Kentucky Framework for Teaching: Specialist Frameworks for Other Professionals are designed for the unique professional responsibilities of these specialists. Each framework consists of research-based sets of components of practice that are consistent with the Kentucky Framework for Teaching. Like the KyFfT, instructional practices are divided into multiple standards clustered into four domains of responsibility: 

1. Planning and Preparation
2. The Environment
3. Delivery of Service
4. Professional Responsibilities

Principal/Assistant Principal

Growth and Evaluation for Principals:  District certified evaluation plans should reflect and support Kentucky's commitment of every school being led by an effective leader.  Local plans should be designed to catalyze professional growth and create a fair and equitable system to promote and measure the effectiveness of school leaders by:

  • providing a basis for leadership improvement through productive principal performance appraisal and professional growth
  • encouraging collaboration between the principal and superintendent
  • promoting self-growth, leadership effectiveness, and improvement of the principal’s overall job performance 

The Performance Standards provide school administrators with a clear understanding of what it means to be effective.
