Superintendent's Message

Fairfield Parents and Community,

    Kansans Can, this is the new vision of the State Board of Education in Kansas, the overarching goal is to “lead the world in the success of each student.”  Kansas is on the verge of taking advantage of a new approach and the opportunities that it presents..

     As our Commissioner of Education, Randy Watson continuously shares to all stakeholders in Kansas; studies suggest that more than 70% of jobs in Kansas by 2020 will require some post-secondary education.  Currently, Kansas only has a 40% post-secondary rate.  How do we get there by 2020?  The focus lies within five areas designed to reach to the 70% mark.  They are: Social-Emotional development; Kindergarten Readiness; Individual Plans of Study; High School Graduation Rate; and Post-Secondary Success.  All of these areas lead to the overall outcome.

    The vision leads the new accreditation system of Kansas known as Kansas Education Systems Accreditation (KESA).  Within this framework, a school district through several stakeholder groups are called to focus on two out of four areas for a five year accreditation cycle.  The areas are: Relationships; Relevance; Responsive Culture; and Rigor.  Fairfield is currently working toward narrowing the two focus areas.  This summer, our district has to decide in what year 1-5 we should fall in the process.  As it stands, we are looking at year one or two because of the work already established.  It is a growth process and it is not just a checklist, a continual improvement model is expected.
