Kentucky Chapter


Chapter Mission

The commitment of the professional membership has been the key to the success of the Association for Learning Environments. We must now build on this tradition by increasing our membership to include sectors now under-represented within the organization. Increasing membership from the communities we serve to include minorities and urban school personnel.

Norton Commons Elementary School Tour

Please join us for an exciting tour and lunch at JCPS's newest school, Norton Commons Elementary. Located in northeast Jefferson County, the state-of-the-art building features plenty of natural light and eco-friendly details such as energy-efficient motion-activated LED lights, individual thermostats in classrooms and geothermal heating and cooling, increasing student learning and energy efficiency.

Norton Commons Elementary School Norton Commons Elementary School

The library media center includes a makerspace – a collaborative learning center that will provide students with hands-on, creative ways to design experiment, build and invent. In addition, the center houses an audio/visual/broadcast room with green screens. Students will have access to a STEAM lab and each Norton Commons Elementary classroom will have Epson interactive projectors.

The school enjoys a unique public/private partnership with the Norton Commons YMCA. Promoting educating the "whole child", the partnership enables them to share facilities, maximize budgets and concentrate public amenities in a central suburban setting. The joint venture with the YMCA is the first of its kind in the state of Kentucky and one of only two such endeavors in the U.S.

With a focus on increasing student learning and energy efficiency, the building was designed and completed by VBN Architects and CMTA Consulting Engineers.

College of Design Awards

The Kentucky Chapter worked with the University of Kentucky – College of Design on creating 21st century learning environments. The 3rd year studio class lead by Professor Greg Luhan PhD produced a variety of school projects including a school for students with special needs, rural sustainable schools, TEAM and STEAM academies, and preforming arts schools. The final jury was held in December and the Kentucky Chapter will issue awards to 2 student projects. The Association board enjoyed working with the students during this semester and seeing the progress of each project.

The Kentucky Chapter will continue working with the University of Kentucky – College of Design and students on creating 21st century learning environments.
