KSDE’s Teacher Licensure team asks systems to fill out Leadership Mentoring Status survey

The Kansas State Department of Education’s Teacher Licensure team will be sending out a survey next week to school systems to gather information about their leadership mentoring programs. 

The survey will be based on the one KSDE sent last spring and is the tool KSDE will use to determine Kansas Education Systems Accreditation (KESA) compliance in the mentoring area. 

It will cover the 2023-2024 academic school year and will ask for the number of building and district leaders who have received mentoring. It also will ask whether the mentoring was provided locally or using an outside provider. 

Although most systems completed the spring 2022 survey, KSDE will be resending it to those that didn’t. 

Both surveys are due by Friday, Nov. 3. 

The data will cover the past four academic years, and KSDE will analyze it for trends, such as the number and types of teachers mentoring, mentoring providers, etc. 

For questions or more information, email KSDE’s Ed Kalas at ekalas@ksde.org. The information collected from the survey will be shared on the mentoring webpage. Survey data will be used to help inform the Professional Standards Board and the Kansas State Board of Education about mentoring in Kansas and to monitor program progress.  

Please contact KSDE’s Ed Kalas, education program consultant/professional development and mentoring, via email at ekalas@ksde.org for more information.
