Welcome to USA|Kansas
Perhaps now, more than any time in the history of education, our students and schools are in need of strong leaders and advocates.

As administrators prepare for students to return, USA|Kansas wants to thank you for your leadership and work on behalf of public education. As I've talked with many of you, It has been great to hear about what your schools are doing to prepare for students. It is hard to believe that summer is coming to a close and in just a few weeks, the hallways will be filled with the familiar chatter of students and classrooms will come alive with students eager to learn. And, at the same time, it is a good reminder of all the work that happens in the shadows -- the work that parents, legislators and the media never see. You do it quietly and with a clear sense of purpose.
The USA|Kansas Board of Directors is comprised of K-12 public education administrators appointed by each member association. The number of directors representing each member association is based on that association's total membership belonging to USA|Kansas. The presidency rotates among those associations with two or more members serving on the board.
United School Administrators of Kansas (USA|Kansas) is a statewide "umbrella" organization comprised of members of ten school administrator associations. We represent more than 2,000 individual administrators statewide.

The mission of USA|Kansas, through collaboration of member associations, is to serve, support and develop educational leaders and to establish USA|Kansas as a significant force to improve education.

USA|Kansas will be sponsoring dialogue and conversation to assist you in defining the role that social media plays in your district. School districts across the state have a wide range of social media presence ranging from non-existent to up to the minute updates on what is happening in the district. Secondly, begin to develop your own Professional Learning Network via Twitter. The session will be facilitated by Kevin Case.

This event will be interactive and focused on doing! You may attend this session as an individual, HOWEVER you are STRONGLY encouraged to bring a team of educators and possibly board members which will allow you to begin to develop your social media vision, policies, procedures, and presence.
