It was established in 1994 by the STLP State Advisory Council, which is composed of teachers, students and community leaders. The mission of STLP is to advance individual capabilities; to motivate all students; and to create leadership opportunities through the use of technology.
 
The program is open to all students in all grade levels in every school in Kentucky.
