Kansas Quality Performance Accreditation (QPA): A Resource Guide for Addressing Outcome 8.
Kansas State Board of Education, Topeka.
This resource guide addresses Outcome 8 of Quality Performance Accreditation (QPA), which was adopted by the Kansas State Board of Education in 1991, to be implemented in all school districts by 1994-95. QPA's stated purpose is to prepare learners to live, learn, and work in a global society. Ten outcomes are identified for schools and communities to use as guidelines in designing their local programs. For Outcome 8, schools and communities are enjoined to ensure that students have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential to live a healthy and productive life. Four state indicators of the successful implementation of Outcome 8 are listed. Local schools and communities will assume much of the responsibility for determining what curriculum should be adopted to address Outcome 8, how the results will be measured, and how the results will be used for local school improvement. This resource guide is intended for local school districts and communities. It does not stipulate state requirements or mandates; instead, it provides 16 examples of local indicators that might be adopted for Outcome 8, and suggests several ways of assessing each indicator if it is established. This range of possible options can be adopted, adapted, or rejected at the local level. (CC)
