Weekly Update from Andy
Seems like the time period between Easter and the end of the school year is the busiest time of the year. It may also be the most important time of the year to say thank you for everything you do to help our special needs children find success. Thanks for all you do - you're the best! Andy
KESA (Kansas Education Systems Accreditation) is coming and Keystone can help you feel better prepared. We will offer OVT (Outside Visitation Team) training in May and other times as needed. Outside Visitation Team training can help you better understand the process and help your building and district navigate through this new process. Watch for news about specific training dates to come.
