To achieve a rating of "accredited," systems must be in good standing with KSDE regarding all applicable state and federal statutory/regulatory requirements. Because the compliance piece is all about statutes and regulations, there is no one document. As long as your system is doing what it usually does to meet requirements, you shouldn’t need to spend a great deal of time on this piece with your leadership team. It is simply a part of KESA so that the State Board can address situations in which a system is not in compliance and is not trying to get back into compliance.
