STLP IS YOUR
WHOLE SCHOOL

Empowering KY’s Students for 25+ years!

The Kentucky Department of Education’s Student Technology Leadership Program (STLP) uses project-based learning principles to empower student learning and achievement. STLP provides a means for student to design, make, connect and learn through technology utilization and creation of original digital content.

Student products, projects, and services are showcased through local, regional, and state events. The “Big 3” events include Regionals, DPOJ, and STLP State Championship.

Open and available to every K-12 student in Kentucky,
STLP is more than a club… it’s your whole school!

SPECIAL MESSAGE: STLP and COVID-19

Students, educators and families/caregivers are facing uncertain times. We all recognize the need to remain agile and flexible as school plans evolve across our state.  STLP is committed to remaining equally agile and flexible as we make our plans for 2020-21. STLP will continue to engage learners in standards based, technology focused, academic activities throughout this pandemic.  

We know that STLP is important to you — and, for many schools, has been woven into the school day as a vital aspect of teaching/learning — but, safety considerations must remain our top priority. So, whether we can do STLP in person, transition to all-digital events, or embrace a hybrid model, please know that we’re working hard now to make adjustments that will allow every school, STLP Coach, and student experience meaningful learning opportunities no matter the reopening model your district employs.

For now, mask up, wash those hands, keep 6′ apart and get ready for another great STLP season!  #TeamKentucky
