Upcoming Events, Trainings and Recognition

KSDE-sponsored professional development trainings scheduled for February

The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) is sponsoring several professional learning opportunities.

Districts with Star Assessments should be sure to schedule their customized virtual learning before it expires. Each school that uses Star Assessments has at least one hour of virtual customizable learning through the state partnership. Begin the scheduling process here.
