KSDE Needs Assessment
The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) Building Needs and State Assessment Review was a new process for all Kansas school districts established prior to the 2022-2023 school year. It was enacted by HB 2567 Sec. 12.
As part of the KSDE Needs and State Assessment Review, each school Building Leadership Team (BLT) within our district has reviewed their Kansas Assessment Program data. This review included KSDE identified staff, student, and school information. Each BLT recommended action steps to work towards moving students into state assessment levels 3 and 4.
During the July 31, 2023 Special Board of Education workshop, Boards members were provided with each school’s needs assessment to review barriers, suggested action steps and verify priorities for budget approval.
