October is National Principals Month. You can #ThankAPrincipal with an e-card on this website: https://principalsmonth.org/e-cards/ THANK YOU to all of our outstanding USD 490 principals!
All USD 490 schools will dismiss 3 hours early instead of only 2 on October 1 so that staff and students who are participating in the Homecoming Parade will have enough time to safely arrive and be set up for the 2:00 p.m. start time. This means that all elementary schools will dismiss at 11:50 a.m. and the middle and high school will dismiss at 12:40 p.m. that day.

KSDE is in the process of developing the 2020 – 2025 State Performance Plan and Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR). This evaluates the State’s efforts to implement the requirements of Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and describes how the state will improve special education. The SPP/APR includes indicators that measure child and family outcomes, as well as other indicators that measure compliance with IDEA requirements. There are PowerPoints that explain any proposed or required indicator changes and the proposed projected targets for the indicators for the next SPP/APR cycle. There are surveys for individuals to share their feedback on the indicators. The PowerPoints and survey links are located on the SPP/APR page of the KSDE website, https://www.ksde.org/Agency/Division-of-Learning-Services/Special-Education-and-Title-Services/Special-Education/KIAS/SPP-and-APR. Please review the Kansas SPP/APR data visualizations at https://public.tableau.com/profile/general.supervision.timely.and.accurate.data#!/. The PowerPoints and surveys are available from July 9 through August 13. Those with longer or more general feedback on special education in Kansas may call 1-800-203-9462 to leave their story and ideas for improvement via voicemail.
The birthdate issue in enrollment has been resolved. Thank you for your patience!
