More than 100 school districts excelling in outcomes established around the vision for education in Kansas were recognized during the Kansas State Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, November 9.

The vision for education in Kansas - Kansas leads the world in the success of each student - was announced in 2015 by the State Board of Education and the Kansas State Department of Education. A new accreditation model, Kansas Education Systems Accreditation (KESA), was announced shortly after. KESA accredits at the system level to create systemic change among school buildings in a district. The Kansans Can Star Recognition Program is designed to support the KESA process by providing a level of recognition that helps districts identify where they want to focus their improvement efforts. The program recognizes district success in the outcome measures Kansans said they value. These outcomes, categorized as either quantitative or qualitative measures, are serving as a roadmap to help Kansas reach its educational vision.

Qualitative Measures
Districts have to apply for recognition and can receive gold, silver, bronze or copper stars in the qualitative measures of:
• Social-emotional growth.
• Kindergarten readiness.
• Individual Plan of Study.
• Civic engagement.

Quantitative Measures
District recognition is automatically calculated by KSDE based on collected district data. No application is necessary. Districts can receive gold, silver, bronze or copper stars in these quantitative measure areas:
• Academically prepared for postsecondary.
• High school graduation.
• Postsecondary success.
