Superintendent’s Message: We’re on Track to Fulfill New State Vision

Last week, Kansas Education Commissioner Randy Watson introduced a new vision for Kansas education – Kansas leads the world in the success of each student. The bold challenge signals accountability for skills beyond academic excellence in our quest to prepare all students for success after high school.


Students at William Allen White School Tuesday assembled care packages to be shipped to members of the armed forces overseas. To help with the project Bob Fancher director of the maintenance department for Emporia Public Schools donated part of his Hopkins award money to help the cause.

Emporia Public Schools is requesting that the community help us with our current clothing drive for our families. If you have new or gently used clean clothing, blankets, or hygiene products you would like to donate please take them to our drop boxes at Flint Hills Mall, Price Chopper, KVOE, or either Emporia State Federal Credit Union locations. November 30th will be the final pick up. Thank you for your generosity!
