Who We Are

The KSDE addresses the Elementary and Secondary Education Act priority of providing comprehensive support and improvement to qualifying schools through sustained coaching within a rigorous and collaborative systems-change process facilitated by the Kansas Learning Network (KLN). In partnership with the Southwest Plains Regional Service Center, KLN coaches work closely with school and district leadership teams to complete a comprehensive needs assessment focusing on root causes, data analysis, risk factors, and expansion of successful elements of the school system. Schools and districts then develop and carry out action plans to modify their infrastructure to improve outcomes for all learners.

The Kansas Learning Network (KLN) is a contract funded by the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) and administered by Southwest Plains Regional Service Center (SWPRSC).
