During the 2015 Regular Session of the General Assembly, Senate Bill 119 passed, amending KRS 156.095 which requires the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) to develop and maintain a list of approved comprehensive evidence-informed trainings on child abuse and neglect prevention, recognition, and reporting that encompass child physical, sexual, and emotional abuse and neglect. 

Each local school board shall adopt one or more trainings from the list approved by the Department of Education to be implemented by schools.  All current school administrators, certified personnel, office staff, instructional assistants, and coaches and extracurricular sponsors who are employed by the school district shall complete the implemented training or trainings by January 31, 2017, and then every two years after.
