Accreditation/KESA

KESA – Kansas Education Systems Accreditation

Accreditation Support Group

Getting a bit anxious about the new accreditation system, KESA? (Did you know it was called KESA?) We want to help! Consultants will meet with district or building TEAMs to share the new accreditation structure, assessment / data information, support for analyzing rubrics and helping your school set goals and so much more. The plan is to provide content for the first two hours and then allow the team to work with guidance for the last hour of the morning. Join us! We make accreditation fun!

REGISTER for the 2016-2017 Accrediation Support Group!

NOTE: On Tuesday, June 14, 2016, the Kansas State Board of Education voted to approve KESA as the new K-12 accreditation model for Kansas.
