Graduation requirements survey
Kansas High School Graduation Task Force Input We need your feedback.

Examination of competencies and multiple ways to show mastery of skills which allow students to move at their own pace and time. Examination of any additional requirements in addition to the high school diploma (value-added assets such as industry recognized certificate, college credits, etc.) Today, we’re asking for your feedback to help guide the work of this group. Please use the QR code provided below and included in the attached document to complete a short survey regarding your thoughts on Kansas’ high school graduation requirements.

March 7-11 is Severe Weather Awareness Week: Flooding is an overflowing of water onto land that is normally dry. Floods can happen during heavy rains, when ocean waves come on shore, when snow melts quickly, or when dams or levees break. Damaging flooding may happen with only a few inches of water, or it may cover a house to the rooftop. Floods can occur within minutes or over a long period, and may last days, weeks, or longer. Floods are the most common and widespread of all weather-related natural disasters. Flash floods are the most dangerous kind of floods, because they combine the destructive power of a flood with incredible speed. Flash floods occur when heavy rainfall exceeds the ability of the ground to absorb it. They also occur when water fills normally dry creeks or streams or enough water accumulates for streams to overtop their banks, causing rapid rises of water in a short amount of time. They can happen within minutes of the causative rainfall, limiting the time available to warn and protect the public.

March 7-11 is Severe Weather Awareness Week. Tornado season usually refers to the time of year the U.S. sees the most tornadoes. The peak “tornado season” for the southern Plains including Kansas is from May into early June. But, remember, tornadoes can happen at any time of year. Tornadoes can also happen at any time of day or night, but most tornadoes occur between 4–9 p.m.

March 7-11 is Weather Awareness Week. Many hazardous weather events are associated with THUNDERSTORMS. Under the right conditions, rainfall from thunderstorms causes flash flooding, killing more people each year than hurricanes, tornadoes or lightning. Lightning is responsible for many fires around the world each year, and causes fatalities. Hail up to the size of softballs damages cars and windows, and kills livestock caught out in the open. Strong (up to more than 120 mph) straight-line winds associated with thunderstorms knock down trees, power lines and mobile homes. Tornadoes (with winds up to about 300 mph) can destroy all but the best-built man-made structures.
