Each system is required to work with an Outside Visitation Team (OVT) of education professionals from the PK-12 classroom, educational leadership, and higher education. This team is charged with coaching, mentoring and supporting the KESA system to which it is assigned for the duration of the five-year accreditation cycle.
While each KESA system is responsible for ensuring that it has an OVT in place, Kansas education service centers (ESCs) will assist them with this task. ESCs will collect and recruit qualified individuals to serve on OVTs, train OVT members, and assign trained members to area KESA systems.
Please register here if you are interested in serving on a KESA Outside Visitation Team. You will be contacted at a later date to register for training. This registration should only take about five minutes.
