KSDE Accreditation and Design team schedules accreditation meetings for November

The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) Accreditation and Design (AD) team has scheduled the following meetings for November:

  • Nov. 6: 9 a.m. to noon, (virtual), Accreditation Advisory Council (AAC). The AAC provides input and feedback to KSDE on accreditation documents, procedures and processes. Members advise KSDE on needs, concerns and issues experienced by educational professionals. Members act as liaisons and advocate for the state’s accreditation system with the groups they represent. The feedback and input received from the AAC informs recommendations to the Kansas State Board of Education.
  • Nov. 7: 9 a.m.-3 p.m. (in person), Accreditation Review Council (ARC). The ARC helps ensure education systems are implementing effective and continuous improvement processes that lead to improved student results. The ARC has 18 members from varying backgrounds (teachers, principals, superintendents, central office staff members, higher education representatives and representatives from private/parochial schools). The ARC is responsible for reviewing and providing input to KSDE staff members regarding the accreditation process and provide accreditation status recommendations to the State Board of Education.
  • Nov. 14: 9-9:45 a.m., Kansas Education Systems Accreditation (KESA) Monthly Update. (Link)
