Course Description:

This course reviews ethics as defined by the Education Professional Standards Board (EPSB).  Participants examine various ethical situations along with actual cases that have been addressed in several states.  Participants will explore important information about ethics in Kentucky through collaborative group time.  Participants are actively engaged in collaborative activities that cause them to reflect on their own decisions and different levels of risk they are willing to accept.  We offer this course in a 3 hour or a 6 hour version depending upon your needs. 

Participants will explore: 

  • What is Ethics? Ethical Spectrum and Risk
  • Education Professional Standards Board (EPSB)
  • Kentucky Code of Conduct for Educators
  • Scenarios & Case Studies
  • Professional Conduct
  • Relationships with Students, Parents, and Colleagues
