Kansas State Schools of Character Recognition Program

January 25, 2019

Calling all schools that are doing great things with social, emotional, and character development.  We want to recognize your efforts and share your success with other schools around the state. 

The Shifting School Culture Recognition is for schools that have developed and implemented an SECD initiative or program for at least one year and are transforming the school culture as well as growing student SECD skills.  These initiatives or programs must support the SECD Standards strands and the school/district KESA goals.  This may not be the same application as a Promising Practice or Enhanced Spotlight.  Shifting School Culture Application 

The Enhanced Spotlight Recognition is for schools that are implementing new initiatives or are enhancing existing initiatives that will strengthen the SECD skills in their students and school climate.  Initiatives must support at least one of the SECD Standards strands and support one or more of the KESA 5R’s.  This may not be the same application as a Promising Practice or Shifting School Culture.  Enhanced Spotlight Application

These applications are due March 22, 2019 and can emailed to Noalee McDonald-Augustine at nmcdonald@smokyhill.org.  The application fee for both is $25.00 and is payable to Smoky Hill Education Service Center.   

The Promising Practices Recognition application process must be completed online through the Character.org website, www.character.org, and is for schools or districts that have developed and successfully implemented a unique character practice.  Promising Practices put one or more of the 11 Principles into action.  The application deadline is March 15, 2019 and has an application fee of $100 payable to Character.org.      

For more information, contact Noalee McDonald-Augustine nmcdonald@smokyhill.org or Kent Reed, kreed@ksde.org.
