Kansans Can

kansans can logo

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. This KSDE vision for education calls for a more student-focused system that provides support and resources for individual success and will require everyone to work together to make it a reality.

ESSDACK supports the Kansans Can vision by:

  • partnering with KSDE leaders and staff to roll out training initiatives around the state
  • aligning all ESSDACK professional learning opportunities to the vision
  • assisting school districts in positioning their accreditation efforts
  • participating in the annual Kansans Can and Do symposium hosted by the seven members of the KAESA
