KSDE-Awarded Banner

The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) has recognized USD 460 as a district achieving the highest level of determination in compliance with special education accountability and reporting requirements.

Below is information from the KSDE web site regarding the recent initiative:
"As a result of the reauthorization of IDEA 2004, increased accountability at the state and local level and changes in the Office of Special Education Programs' (OSEP) monitoring priorities, Kansas has shifted from a Focused Monitoring System to an Integrated Accountability System. The Kansas Integrated Accountability System is in alignment with IDEA 2004 and General Supervision requirements as outlined by the OSEP and Kansas Special Education Statutes. The shift to the Kansas Integrated Accountability System results in a continuous monitoring cycle involving data collection, verification, reporting, and improvement activities by both the State and LEAs. The system will ensure both state level and individual district compliance with the federal special education requirements and monitor those areas most closely associated with improved academic achievement results for children and youth with exceptionalities."
