 KESA Application

The KESA Application (KESA App) is a district-level application. It should be completed by the superintendent or his/her designee. In order to request/gain access to the KESA App, the user must log in to a district-level authenticated applications account. If the user does not have a district-level account, a separate district-level account must be established by going to the authenticated applications login page and clicking on the green "Register" button. In the "building" dropdown, select "All buildings."  

Note: The process is slightly different for private schools where each building is accredited as a separate system.  Please, do not hesitate to contact KSDE if you need any assistance gaining access to the KESA App.

 

New KESA Forms 

The intent is for these updated forms to be in the Authenticated Application by August 2022. Please, ignore red or green text in the forms.  The red text is to help KSDE staff as they continue to review the forms, while the green text is used as notes for the programmers as they implement the forms into the Authenticated Application.

KESA Guidance Document 

The KESA Guidance Document is being updated to contain a summary of the KESA process along with the latest reports that will be available in the Authenticated Application.  Additionally, new resources will be included to assist you in your accreditation journey.  

KESA Accreditation Criteria

The KESA Accreditation Criteria was developed for the Accreditation Review Council (ARC) to help make an accreditation recommendation to the State Board of Education.  It is comprised of eight (8) sections.  Each section corresponds to a question in the ARC's executive summary recommendation of accreditation report to the State Board of Education. The document is being provided so that systems and their outside visiting team can have a clear understanding about the measures the ARC is using to make an accreditation recommendation.
