Emergency Safety Interventions (ESI)

Beginning with the 2016-17 school year all emergency safety intervention data will be reported in the new Kansas Integrated Accountability System (KIAS) application. Please see the Emergency Safety Intervention page for information on this topic.


ESEA/IDEA Tables are due June 30 of every year. Please note that these tables cannot be completed until your building's End of Year Accountability (EOYA) Report is uploaded in KIDS.


KAN-DIS conference calls and Q & A sessions will be held for principals, superintendents, and other interested discipline staff at various time throughout the year. Conference call information will be announced via the KIDS listserv, Superintendents listserv, and other listservs (as appropriate).
