KESA – Kansas Education Systems Accreditation

KESA employs a familiar PROCESS for achieving growth (formerly referred to in QPA as the “school improvement process”).

KESA provides a FRAMEWORK – The Five Rs – that serves as a common lens through which to view and assess (rubrics) the practices that encompass education system quality.
