Kansas State Department of Education Kansans Can Star Recognition Program

 

 

Social-Emotional Growth

 

Kansas school districts’ missions reflect the Kansas State Board of Education’s (KSBE) vision of preparing successful high school graduates. These districts locally measure progress toward achievement of the State Board of Education’s social-emotional outcome and goal of each student developing the social, emotional and character competencies that promote learning and success in life.

The Kansas STAR Recognition Program seeks to provide Kansas districts an opportunity to validate the coherent, rigorous and sustained commitment required to improve adult and student outcomes. When implemented districtwide as a systemic, prevention-focused, responsive strategy rather than an intervention for a subgroup of students, social-emotional learning creates the equitable conditions necessary for student achievement and a safe, positive and healthy school climate.

Districts will have the opportunity to apply for social-emotional growth recognition.
