GEMINI II: The Space Walk Begins

Kansans Can School Redesign Project

Nineteen school districts from across the state will take part in Gemini II: The Space Walk Begins, which is the next round of the Kansans Can School Redesign Project, the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) announced Tuesday, April 17, 2018.

KSDE in February 2018 began accepting applications for the Gemini II Project and the districts were announced April 17 during the Kansas State Board of Education meeting.

In support of Kansas’ vision for education, KSDE launched the Kansans Can School Redesign Project in August 2017. Twenty-nine Kansas school districts applied for the project. Seven districts — each one representing one of the Mercury 7 astronauts — were selected. Remaining applicants had the opportunity to participate in the Gemini I Project. 

With the April 2018 announcement, 47 districts and 103 schools are now taking part in the school redesign project.
