In 2021, the Kentucky Department of Education hired Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) coordinators at each regional cooperative. The cooperatives provide comprehensive educational services and programs that support their regional districts and schools.
The DEIB coordinators offer assistance through a multi-tiered system of supports and utilize tools like the equity dashboard, the early warning system, the school report card and Panorama Impact Kentucky Data to offer schools data-driven approaches by going through the problem-solving analysis protocol and looking for root-causes. They also are equipped to provide presentations to school staff on KDE’s Equity Toolkit, A4 modules, trauma-informed practices and more.
