The Kansas K-12 accreditation model, Kansas Education Systems Accreditation (KESA), accredits education systems.
Each system is required to work with an Outside Visitation Team (OVT) of education professionals from the Pre-K-12 classroom, educational leadership, and higher education. This team is charged with coaching, mentoring, and supporting the KESA system to which it is assigned for the duration of the five-year accreditation cycle.
Each school district is responsible for ensuring that it has an OVT in place, Kansas education service centers (ESCs) will assist them with this task.
USD 232 has an outstanding OVT who offers a plethora of experience and professional vantage points. This team will lead the district, with annual visits, to increase school improvement efforts that results in maximized student efficacy and achievement.
