The Kansas State Department of Education is charged with accrediting all public PK-12 schools in Kansas. The agency uses an accreditation model called the Kansas Education Systems Accreditation or KESA program. Accreditation is necessary as a measure of accountability to the patrons, parents and students of the Smoky Valley community. It provides assurance that the school system is providing high quality learning for all students in preparation for their adult lives.

KESA is the Kansas model used to accredit school systems. This school improvement model provides districts with a process and the tools to develop goals centered on student growth and achievement.
