Dr. Randy Watson, Kansas Commissioner of Education, will be facilitating community conversations in 50-cities across the state to gather feedback on the state’s vision for K-12 education – and a significant part of that vision is how the state’s education system can continue to drive the Kansas economy forward. This tour includes a session at El Dorado High School on Wednesday, August 18, at 6:00 p.m.
Commissioner Watson will be joined by Deputy Commissioner Dr. Brad Neuenswander and members of the Kansas State Board of Education who will gather community input on the current direction for Kansas K-12 education and share progress made toward achieving the vision established by the Kansas State Board of Education.
The 2021 tour is a follow-up to the Kansas Children. Kansas’ Future. community conversations tour that took place in 2015. Using the feedback gathered from more than 2,000 parents, educators, legislators, school board members, business community members, and more, the State Board created a new vision for education: Kansas leads the world in the success of each student.
Now, nearly six years later, KSDE is again asking education professionals, business leaders
and community members to lend their voices to the conversation.
I hope you are able to join us to give your perspective on our education system and how it can
best serve the needs of our students, families, business community and all of our great state.
