When you have a room full of district leaders, you build on their own experiences and support their growth as it relates to student learning, Especially as they work through the natural chaos inherent to the superintendent's role.

Share your thoughts on the question below! During a stop with leaders from USA, KASB, KNEA, AFT, KSDE, USD 501, USD 450, and Washburn University on September 5th, US Department of Education Deputy Assistant Lauren Mendoza facilitated conversation with Kansas Education Leaders about their work to “Raise the Bar” in our public schools to help each student succeed. Attendees were asked to share bright spots and examples of best practices while providing feedback on how federal policy changes could better set up school systems for increased success. Through the discussion, a few common ideas emerged: Kansas schools are working diligently to recruit and retain high quality teachers but more work is needed in this area [i.e. pay, licensing, access to preparation/training] Special Education funding needs to be fully funded from the federal level. Federal mandates should not come without implementation funding. High-quality career-centered training opportunities for students are key to increasing post-secondary success, and Kansas is a leader in this area! How do you see Kansas educators ‘Raising the Bar’ for student success?
