Launched by the Prichard Committee in 1997, the institutes offer training to explain basics of Kentucky school policy and goals, while helping participants develop the capacity to support and advocate for successful public schools for all students.

The institutes are free for participants through the backing of sponsors. The institute in Northern Kentucky, which began in August, was offered through funding provided by Toyota, Duke Energy, State Farm Insurance and St. Elizabeth Healthcare. Fellows graduated in late October.

The Eastern Kentucky institute was sponsored by Partners for Education at Berea College.

The Louisville institute is sponsored by Toy- ota, LG&E and KU, The C.E. and S. Foundation, The Gheens Foundation, and The Courier-Journal/Gannett Foundation.
