In October 2015, the Kansas State Board of Education announced a new vision for education in Kansas. This vision gives direction for a student-focused system and resources for individual success. The State Board identified Kindergarten Readiness as one of five Outcome Areas to measure progress and now expects every school district in Kansas to utilize a developmentally appropriate snapshot tool beginning with the 2019-2020 school year. The goal of Kindergarten Readiness is to ensure that each student enters Kindergarten at age five socially, emotionally, and academically prepared for success.
To help us meet this goal, we are asking you to please consider participating in the state’s child screening program. Please click the following links to begin the questionnaires:
