Kansas Vision for Education

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 new 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. Together, Kansans Can.

Vision

Kansas leads the world in the success of each student.

Outcomes to be measured

  • Social-emotional growth measured locally
  • Kindergarten readiness
  • Individual Plan of Study based on career interest
  • High school graduation
  • Postsecondary success

Defining Success

A successful Kansas high school graduate has the academic preparation, cognitive preparation, technical skills, employability skills and civic engagement to be successful in postsecondary education, in the attainment of an industry recognized certification or in the workforce, without the need for remediation.
