Today Randy Watson, Kansas Commissioner of Education, presented the first Kansans Can Star Recognition winners to the State Board of Education.  

According to KSDE, "the Kansans Can Star Recognition Program recognizes district success in the outcome measures Kansans told us they value. These outcomes, categorized as either quantitative or qualitative measures, serve as the roadmap for Kansas to reach its vision for education." 

For recognition in Prepared for Postsecondary, Graduation, and Postsecondary Success KSDE used collected district data. For the area of Social-Emotional Growth, Kindergarten Readiness, IPS, and Civic Engagement districts applied to be considered. 

We, at SWPRSC, would like to congratulate the schools that we work with, in any capacity, for their accomplishments in these areas.
