Our Mission:

To ensure that all students achieve their full potential
in a language-rich environment.


The State Board of Education has voted unanimously that KSD’s current interim superintendent be given permanent status as the superintendent of KSD. I would like to take this opportunity to say I am honored and very excited to be the 29th Superintendent of the Kansas School for the Deaf. As an educational leader, I believe in a quality education for all students in the state of Kansas, and my every intention is to ensure KSD continues to expand its programs. Every child has the right to a top-notch education and full access to language. KSD’s reputation is not only for its outstanding academic excellence and extracurricular programs, but also for the positive and healthy relationships between staff and students.

This year will continue to be shaped by our efforts as outlined in the Strategic Plan approved by the State Board of Education and our final year of a 5-year cycle of CEASD Accreditation. The initiatives that will be implemented this year are:

  • Language Assessment Program for DHH
  • Expansion of Outreach Programs
  • Staff Support and Development in Core Content Areas
  • Statewide Professional Development
  • Kindergarten Readiness
  • Social-Emotional Learning Curriculum
