Holliday to Revise Mission at KDE

Citing a declining budget and a staff that is 60% smaller than it was in the 1990s, today Commissioner Terry Holliday called for KDE to redefine itself.

I am asking staff to look closely at revising our mission statement and to review the work they are doing to ensure we are aligning the work and the budget to the key strategic goals of high student performance, high-quality teachers and administrators, supportive environments, and high-performing schools and districts.

KDE will be abandoning some things they have done in the past but will retain those highest priority activities based on input from stakeholders.

Holliday credits CPE head Robert King with opening up higher education to greater level of cooperation than has historically been the case.
