Teacher Appreciation Week

Dear Math Educators of Kansas,

Thank you.

Thank you for being shapers of dreams, creators of excellence, protectors of children and stewards of education. Thank you for igniting Kansas children’s passion to learn; for teaching them that all things are possible, but not always easy; that it’s okay to fail, because we learn from our mistakes; and that if life ever becomes more than they can handle, that you are their trusted shoulder of support.  Thank you for standing tall in the face of adversity, for finding ways to do more with less when called for, and for being relentless advocates for Kansas children.

We know that a mere “thank you” is not nearly enough for all you do for Kansas students, but in addition to our thanks please know that you have our respect.  We are profoundly proud of Kansas educators. Thanks to your work, Kansas students are being given the foundation needed to succeed in college and careers, Kansas graduation rates have increased for the fourth consecutive year, and our students continue to outscore national averages on both ACT and SAT college entrance exams. Be proud of the work you do each and every day to prepare Kansas children for lifelong success. We are!

With our sincerest thanks,

Kansas State Board of Education

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.
