Several forums have been scheduled across the state for Commissioner Watson to share information gathered during a series of community conversations earlier this year. He will reveal what Kansans communicated they want from the state's education system. The Kansas State Board of Education will use these results to help guide the development of its strategic vision for Kansas K-12 education. These presentations are open to the public. State Board members from the area plan to attend at these remaining sessions:
Oct. 1 -- Salina
Oct. 6 -- Olathe
Oct. 7 -- Greenbush
Oct. 8 -- Clearwater
For times and locations, see the news release on KSDE's homepage. http://ksde.org/Home/QuickLinks/NewsRoom/tabid/586/aid/136/Default.aspx
The next State Board of Education meeting is Tuesday, Oct. 13, in the Board Room of the Landon State Office Building, 900 SW Jackson. Board members will participate in a vision planning retreat on Oct. 14 at KASB Offices in Topeka. The agenda is posted under the "Agendas, Meeting Dates and Minutes" tab.
