Kentucky Teacher Internship Program (KTIP)

The Kentucky Teacher Internship Program (KTIP) is suspended until June 30, 2020. Due to budgetary constraints and lack of available funds this program is temporarily suspended during the current biennium budget.

KTIP is an internship program designed to provide assistance to new teachers. Its main goal is to help new teachers experience a successful first year in the classroom.
