The Kansas Assessment Program (KAP) includes a variety of tests aligned to Kansas’ content standards, which help educators and policymakers evaluate student learning and meet the requirements for federal and state accountability.
Kansas State Department of Education and USD 264 are working to ensure 100% of our students graduate with the necessary skills to be successful individuals after high school graduation. The start of building a strong foundation begins at home as infants and toddlers. Like a building, the more solid the foundation, the stronger and longer lasting the building. Basic skills learned, practiced and mastered provide a solid foundation for higher-level skills and higher level learning to take place. Kansas content standards provide a guide of skills to master at each level.
Research shows students tend to perform better when testing on the original testing dates, vs. having to make up an assessment. We would greatly appreciate your assistance and support in scheduling appointments around your child’s testing dates and times, if possible.
