Kansas State Department of Education Kansans Can Star Recognition Program



Individual Plan of Study (IPS)

Leading the world in the success of each student depends upon the empowerment of student capacity in the pursuit of the high school diploma. Continuous development throughout a student's learning experiences, coupled with collaborative exploration involving school staff members, family and community, are the platform for the successful launch into postsecondary success.

The Kansans Can Individual Plan of Study Star Recognition program recognizes school districts that offer quality and inclusive opportunities for each student to experience connected learning which develops academic knowledge, as well as technical and employability skills.

Districts will have the opportunity to apply for IPS recognition.
