Kansans Can School Redesign Project

Andover Public Schools is proud to be part of the Kansans Can School Redesign Project, which aims to re-imagine student learning for the 21st century, based on the needs and desires of Kansans. 
Four Andover schools – Robert Martin, Meadowlark and Cottonwood elementaries, as well as Andover Central Middle School – went through their planning process last year as part of the Gemini II cohort of Kansans Can schools. They are launching their redesign during the 2019-20 school year.
Two more – Prairie Creek Elementary School and Andover eCademy – are going through their planning this year, with a launch in 2020-21. Plans call for all Andover schools to start the process by the 2021-22 school year. 
The re-design process is based on four pillars:
  • Student success skills
  • Personalized learning
  • Community participation
  • Real-world application
