About Kansas Schools
Kansas, A great place to teach and live!
Kansans are demanding higher standards in academic skills, as well as employability and citizenship skills, and the need to move away from a one-size-fits-all system that relies exclusively on state assessments. The Kansas vision for education - Kansas leads the world in the success of each student - calls for a more student-focused system that provides supports and resources for individual success and will require everyone to work together to make it a reality.
Through this vision, Kansas defines a successful high school graduate as having the academic preparation, cognitive preparation, technical skills, employability skills and civic engagement to be successful in postsecondary education, in the attainment of an industry recognized certification or in the workforce, without the need for remediation.
To measure progress toward achieving this vision for education, the Kansas State Board of Education has identified the following outcomes:
Social-emotional growth measured locally
Individual Plan of Study (IPS) focused on career interest
High school graduation rates
Teachers are the bedrock of this vision. Teachers establish and nurture the responsive culture and individual relationships critical to learning. Teachers develop and deliver the rigorous, relevant learning experiences to ensure students have the skills needed to be successful after high school.
Teachers make the vision reality.
