March 28, 2018

Members Present: Lanny Carpenter, Pam Dankenbring, Chris Denner, Todd Milner, Kevin O’Neil, and Kevin Samuelson

Member Absent: Sonya Stohs

Dr. Randy Watson, Kansas Commissioner of Education talked about the Gemini II Project which is redesigned around the five outcomes established by the Kansas State Board of Education. The five outcomes are Social-emotional growth, Kindergarten readiness, Individual plan of study (IPS), High school graduation, and Postsecondary success. The definition of a successful high school graduate is that the graduate has the academic preparation, cognitive preparation, technical skills, employability skills and civic engagement to be successful in postsecondary education, in the attainment of an industry-recognized certification or in the workforce, without the need for remediation. The vision is: Kansas leads the world in the success of each student.
