April 23, 2024 Dear Stacey Parks, Congratulations, USD D0397 has been assigned a Meets Requirements level of determination (LOD) through the IDEA State Performance Plan (SPP) Report for FFY 2022. “Meets Requirements” is the highest status level for district IDEA LOD. The district earned this LOD through its compliance on all SPP compliance indicators, the timely submission of accurate data, IDEA-related single audit findings, IDEA findings from file review, complaint, and due process hearing findings. As a result of the district’s Meets Requirements LOD for FFY 2022, USD D0397 is eligible for several fiscal and program rewards, which are listed in the district’s Kansas APR Expanded Report. Sincerely, Bert Moore, Director Special Education and Title Services Congratulations to our Special Education Teachers Amy Pagenkopf and Kim Smith, our Speech & Language teacher Callie Coleman, and our School Psychologist Larry McManaman on their dedication to our students.

“If you have a sophomore or junior student, there will be two Butler college representatives who are coming to the school on Monday - 4/8 - to speak to them about taking Butler classes in the fall. There are MANY options for courses to take while in high school and there’s scholarships available to help cover some costs and discounted prices for courses. If this is something your student might be interested in, let them know they need to speak to the representatives! They will need to know their social security numbers for this. Please let Mrs. McMichael know if you have any questions!”
