Best High School in Kansas
A week ago, Kansas Schools were in danger of losing AP and IB courses. House Bill 2292, otherwise known as the “Local Control of Kansas Education Act,” sought to remove IB and AP courses from Kansas schools as well as classes taught with the common core curriculum. Over spring break, an education committee held a meeting in Topeka to discuss the bill, with a full audience composed of supporters and those from the opposition. After two hours of discussion, and three amendments being presented, then rejected, it did not get past committee and the bill did not pass. However, this bill has been around since 2010, when Kansas’ education standards were last revised. We have until 2017 until they are revised again and it may very well be that another bill similar to this one may be presented. A few representatives read emails from concerned parents during the committee meeting asking that their child’s education not be compromised. The rejection of this bill could not have been possible without parents and students who reached out to our representatives and told them their story. Thank you to those of you who reached out in concern of education. We encourage you all to keep an eye out in case a new bill should present itself so that we may once again join our voices together should we need too.

The Nutritional Services Department is excited to invite all students, faculty, parents, administrators, district employees and community members to participate in this year’s Taste of 500! The theme for this year is the Indianapolis 500 and being “On Track to Healthy Eating.” Please distribute this flyer to all district employees, students, parents and community members to celebrate healthy eating and sample many different foods. We will also be having many wellness based activities and booths with fun for all ages. The event will be held at Schlagle High School, in the cafeteria area, from 1:30-4:00 on April 22nd. We ask that building administrators RSVP to Stacy Raith, firstname.lastname@example.org, with your projected participant counts, so that we can ensure that we have enough food, activities, and prizes for all participants.
This event is such a great opportunity for all to come together and taste foods that are being considered for school menus, while interacting with all the people of this great district. We look forward to a successful Taste of 500 and hope that you, your colleagues, friends and fellow community members can be a part of it.
