KSDE to host Kindergarten Readiness Star Recognition Zoom Feb. 8

The path to leading the world in the success of each student starts in early childhood, long before a 5-year-old child begins kindergarten. Join the Kansas State Department of Education from 1-2 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 8, to discuss the 2024-2025 Kansans Can Star Recognition Program for Kindergarten Readiness. KSDE staff will review the 2024-2025 Kindergarten Readiness Rubric, which has been updated to simplify the self-assessment process. Attendees will be invited to share success stories and ideas with their peers.

Click here to register for the Feb. 8 Kindergarten Readiness Star Recognition Zoom. The session will be recorded and available at a later date.
