Kansans are demanding higher standards in academic skills, employability and citizenship skills, and the need to move away from a system that relies exclusively on state assessments. The Kansans Can Redesign project is focused on creating learning environments that develop those skills and encourage long-term student success. 

ESSDACK can help.

July 2019 Keynote

Dr. Randy Watson

Dr. Randy Watson, Kansas Commissioner of Education, recently spoke about the vital role schools play in the future of each Kansas student. It was a powerful message that we want to share with you.


We’ve chunked out the keynote into smaller sections – each designed to lead you through an exploration of the current K-12 educational system and the power of the Redesign project.
