Early Childhood Foundations for School Success reporting window open through May 31

Remember that end-of-the-year reporting for Early Childhood programs includes the end-of-the-year survey for both Preschool-Aged At-Risk and Kansas Preschool Pilot funding sources. 

As required by Program Assurance 20, Kansas preschool programs funded by Preschool-Aged At-Risk and/or Kansas Preschool Pilot (KPP) must enter data into the Early Childhood Foundations for School Success Authenticated web application.   

These surveys can be found in the KSDE Authenticated Applications. The login to KSDE Authenticated Applications can be found here.    

If you do not have access to Foundations for School Success (FSS), follow the directions on page 9 of the User’s Guide to gain access. To enter information into FSS, you will need a “District/Org Update” or Multi-Org Update” user access level. The FSS User’s Guide can be found here

The window to enter this information will be open from May 1- May 31.  

Questions in this survey will include:  

  • What research did your school district rely on in determining that a need for service or assistance exists in your community?  

  • Which tools did you use to measure progress in literacy, math and social-emotional development?  

  • How many total children were assessed in each of these areas from entry to exit of the program?  

  • Based on the assessment data, how many children in your program showed improvement in each of these areas from entry to exit of the program?  

  • Kansas Preschool Pilot (KPP) Programs will also need to report how many children they served using KPP grant funds, and how many staff received professional development.  

Programs that receive both Preschool-Aged At-Risk and Kansas Preschool Pilot funding will need to complete a survey for each funding source. Programs that only have approved Preschool-Aged At-Risk programs will only need to complete the Preschool-Aged At-Risk Survey.  

If you have any questions while completing this survey, contact Natalie McClane, an Early Childhood education program consultant for the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE), at nmcclane@ksde.org

These reports provide important information to support early childhood investments in our state. Thank you for your work to accurately report this information.
