Teacher Evaluations

A new report released today by the Kansas Association of School Boards shows that Kansas school districts have added almost 4,000 teaching positions since 1998, an increase of nearly 13 percent, or four times the rate of student growth. Over the same period, districts have reduced the number of superintendents by nearly 7 percent and principals by 6 percent.That has allowed districts to reduce class size and add teachers for special education, kindergarten and early childhood programs, and other special services.
