Certificates received from the State of Kansas

Four years ago, the Kansas State Board of Education launched its new vision for education - Kansas leads the world in the success of each student - and identified key outcomes Kansans said they valued. These outcomes include social-emotional growth, kindergarten readiness, Individual Plan of Study, civic engagement, high school graduation and postsecondary success.

Today we are pleased to announce the launch of the Kansas Can Star Recognition program, designed to recognize districts for success achieved in the individual outcome areas.
