Join the Conversation

The Kansas State Department of Education is currently seeking feedback on our Kansas College and Career Standards in English language arts and mathematics.  These standards were approved by the State Board of Education in 2010, and are up for review now.  Adoption of new standards is scheduled in 2017.  Please take the time to join in the conversation thus ensuring that your voice is heard.

The purpose of this website is to obtain early feedback on all Kansas College and Career Ready Standards.  Kansas has had content standards for more than 20 years and conducts a review of its standards every seven years.  Our standards review process begins two years prior to formal adoption by the State Board of Education.

It is our hope that through this online tool we can increase the feedback received from all constituents during this review process. 

Thank you for taking the time.

All interested parties wishing to provide feedback have until October 30, 2015 to submit feedback via this interactive website.
