This website is to assist districts in meeting the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and K.S.A 72-5153. The ESSA requires districts to use their federal funds to support evidence based practices. K.S.A 72-5153 (d) states that “the state board shall identify and approve evidence-based best practices for at-risk program and instruction of students receiving at-risk program services. The state board shall review and update such best practices as part of its five year accreditation system review process.” We will continue to update this website with approved evidence-based practices.
Evidence-based: Any concept or strategy that is derived from or informed by objective evidence that demonstrates a statistically significant effect – most commonly, educational research or metrics of school, teacher, and student performance.
Districts that identify evidenced based practices that are not on this webpage or the links on this website (i.e. What Works Clearinghouse) may submit through e-mail a request to have an evidence-based practice added. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org including the practice and the evidence, including links to where the practice and evidence may be found online.
