Kennedy Elementary was chosen by the Kansas State Dept. of Education this summer to be one of seven districts at the elementary level in the state to go through the redesign process. Kennedy has a redesign team that consists of the principal, teachers, and our curriculum director to help lead this initiative. Over the past 6 months we have visited various schools, researched many different learning styles, platforms, and best teaching and learning practices. The team has spent countless hours not only on the time away from family to visit different schools, but to evaluate programs and to help determine the best learning environment for our students.
We want the focus to be on the student and their goals and learning progressions.
