KSDE is in the process of developing the 2020 – 2025 State Performance Plan and Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR). This evaluates the State’s efforts to implement the requirements of Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and describes how the state will improve special education. The SPP/APR includes indicators that measure child and family outcomes, as well as other indicators that measure compliance with IDEA requirements. There are PowerPoints that explain any proposed or required indicator changes and the proposed projected targets for the indicators for the next SPP/APR cycle. There are surveys for individuals to share their feedback on the indicators. The PowerPoints and survey links are located on the SPP/APR page of the KSDE website, https://www.ksde.org/Agency/Division-of-Learning-Services/Special-Education-and-Title-Services/Special-Education/KIAS/SPP-and-APR. Please review the Kansas SPP/APR data visualizations at https://public.tableau.com/profile/general.supervision.timely.and.accurate.data#!/. The PowerPoints and surveys are available from July 9 through August 13. Those with longer or more general feedback on special education in Kansas may call 1-800-203-9462 to leave their story and ideas for improvement via voicemail.
The birthdate issue in enrollment has been resolved. Thank you for your patience!
Don't forget...Enrollment opens TODAY!

Our maintenance team is working with the utility company to get power restored, and we plan to resume Explore490 tomorrow. If you have any questions, please contact our District Office at 316-322-4800.
Summer programs and summer hours begin today! The District Office and Bus Barn will be open 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday until the end of July.
The parent and student portals in PowerSchool are now closed for summer maintenance. We are working hard to get everything set up for next year!
What a wonderful example of community connection! EHS art teachers and students worked with the Partners in Education Foundation to create what we hope is the first of many murals in the community. This one is located at Fourth and Main!
Just a reminder, summer programs begin June 7!
