Aren't we all WiPs (Works in Progress)? Well, this "new" website is no exception. We've migrated most of the info over here, so that there is nothing live on the 'classic' site, but we're still updating a lot of things. :)~ webmaster 6/8/2017

Q&A

7:45 – 8:00 p.m.

The passage of Every Student Succeeds Act – ESSA – in 2015 represented a shift from a prescriptive federal role in education under No Child Left Behind (NCLB) to more state and local flexibility. States now have more responsibility over their accountability systems, assessments, standards and school improvement plans than they had in the past 15 years.

So what does this new law mean for your child’s education and school? Where is the process in Kansas?

Join us July 13 to participate!
