Reporting and Operations

Systems should have at least three OVT members

The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) maintains that every system needs to have at least three Outside Visitation Team (OVT) members, which includes the chair. KSDE also understands that OVT spots can be difficult to fill, but anticipates that the reducation in required reporting this school year will increase individuals’ willingness to serve in these roles.

Accreditation and Design (AD) team members will be hosting OVT member and chair trainings in early September. You can review a list of trained members and chairs on the OVT webpage. This list will be updated after the upcoming training. Having at least three members on your OVT is best practice for receiving quality, objective feedback. If you need any support, email the AD team at accreditation@ksde.org

The KESA Webpage is constantly being updated with the work of the AD team. Review the team’s webpage regularly to see what new resources and supports are available.
