Regional Training Center

[RTC Logo]

The training centers were established in 1987 as a unique service delivery for training, technical assistance, consultation and lending of materials. They were established t provide services to local school districts for early childhood programs for special needs and at-risk children ages three to five. The centers provide peer-to-peer services which research shows is the most effective approach for working with local school district and agency personnel. The staff from the five (5) Regional Training Centers provide assistance to the local school districts and other service providers in the implementation of the preschool component of the Kentucky Education Reform Act of 1990 and the National Philosophy of No Child Left Behind. The RTC's emphasize the importance of early childhood as the foundation for the future success throughout the school years. We nurture the philosophy of federal legislation, which states "We must make sure that every child enters school ready to learn - every child - not just one, not just a few, but every single child."

The Kentucky IECE Certified Teacher Registry

The Preschool Regulation requires the hiring of certified preschool teachers into vacate positions beginning Fall 2004 (704 KAR 3:410). The correct certification for preschool teachers in Kentucky is the Interdisciplinary Early Childhood Education (IECE) birth to primary certificate.

The IECE Certified Teacher Registry will help alleviate teacher shortages by matching certified teachers with preschool openings throughout Kentucky. This registry will be available to any teachers who hold the IECE certification or statement of eligibility in Kentucky. The registry is also available to teachers in Kentucky who hold a letter of exemption from the Education Professional Standards Board (issued to preschool teachers between 1997 and 2003).

The registry is listed according to the number of applicants looking for employment in a specific county/district. Administrators looking for teachers, may contact the Simpson County RTC for a list of registered teachers in their county/district.

Applicants can be added to the IECE Certified Teacher Registry by filling out an application and sending it to the Simpson County Regional Training Center (RTC). The application can be downloaded by clicking here.

For more information about the IECE Certified Teacher Registry, please contact Bill Porter at the Simpson County RTC , contact information is on the left, or Annie Rooney French at (502) 564-7056, e-mail afrench@kde.state.ky.us.
