"Kansas Will Lead The World In The Success Of Each Student!"
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:

In support of Kansas’ vision for education, the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) has launched the Kansans Can School Redesign Project. Twenty-nine Kansas school districts applied for the Kansans Can Redesign Project. However, only seven could be selected. The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) developed the Gemini Project and offered the remaining districts an opportunity to take part in the project on a smaller scale.
