For a fraction of the cost of other organizations, KAPE offers DOUBLE the liability coverage!  For $200/year you receive $2 million in liability coverage and other benefits.  PLUS, if need for legal representation arises in an employment dispute or threat to your licensure through referral to EPSB, you will have GUARANTEED legal representation until the incident is resolved.  With KAPE, you can love your school and your wallet! 

Congratulations to Nancy Hale, past President and member of the Kentucky Association of Professional Educators Board of Directors!  Nancy was selected as one of the 2022 Notable Women in Kentucky Politics and Government.  


NEEDING SOME LEGAL ADVICE?

KAPE members now have an email address that goes
directly to our legal team!  

Legal.Help@kentuckyteachers.org


 

The recent US Supreme Court decision in Janus means that public employees are no longer forced to join a union or to pay agency fees as a condition of their job.  Employees must now "opt in" instead of the traditional "opt out" that has been required for years by some districts in the local collective bargaining contracts.  If you have been forced to pay any agency fees to the union, KAPE is collaborating with independents in other states to attempt to recoup that money back to educators.  Contact us with questions!


LOAN FORGIVENESS APPLICATION AVAILABLE TO ALL TEACHERS

All teachers are eligible to apply for federal loan forgiveness. No union or association membership is necessary. You do not need a special tool other than a computer and a search engine.  Here are a couple of sites where you can learn more about the process.  Check it out!  blog.ed.gov/2019/09/public-service-loan-forgiveness-tips/  and  studentaid.ed.gov

Really, you do not need anything or anyone else to go-between for this program, as ALL teachers are eligible to apply.  Keep your information private and your personal identifying data safe by not going through a "navigator" or other portals where you cannot be sure the information would not be collected by a third party.  If you have questions, call your individual loan servicer.
