CEASD Accreditation Self-Study ReportCONTEXT OF KANSAS SCHOOL FOR THE DEAFACCREDITATION PROCESSThe Conference of Educational Administrators of Schools and Programs for the Deaf(CEASD) accreditation process has been fully embraced and implemented by KSD. TheKansas State Department of Education (KSDE) has agreed that KSD can use the CEASDaccreditation process as long as it covers the hallmarks of the Kansas Education SystemsAccreditation (KESA). This process has been an effective tool for us to improve instruction,to improve our relationship with our constituents, and to measurably demonstrate oureducational effectiveness. The CEASD accreditation process provides an opportunity forprofessionals to work together for the improvement of KSD programs. Because so manystudents come to KSD so far behind academically, it is extremely difficult to overcome theselearning deficits until we can address communication and language which are required to attainliteracy as early as possible.This is the last year of a five-year cycle for the CEASD accreditation process. Many servicessuch as training programs for teachers of the deaf, outreach services, parent support, andprofessional development have been implemented for special and general education teachersto ensure students who are D/HH receive a quality education. The process of accreditationallows KSD to build true capacity to improve student learning and make continuous schoolimprovement a reality.KSD aims to strengthen educational quality and accountability through the KSDE SpecialEducation Kansas Integrated Accountability System (KIAS) and Kansas Education SystemsAccreditation (KESA). Five years ago, the process of accreditation was implemented throughthe CEASD because of their knowledge in the field of deaf education. The State of Kansas hasadopted a new state accreditation process which is similar in many ways to that of CEASD.After reviewing the KESA requirements, a crosscheck with CEASD was created and foundboth systems matched up well. KSDE agreed to allow us to use CEASD as our stateaccreditation process. In order to align the requirements with KESA, the CEASD accreditationvisit will be held in November 2019. While not technically a joint accreditation visit, some ofthe unique state requirements will be included as part of our CEASD Self-Study.KSD used a collaborative process to develop the self-study. Under the direction of thesuperintendent and the Kansas School for the Deaf Leadership Team (KSDLT), the twelvestandards were assigned to different chairpersons. The chairs then formed committees andbegan the process of collecting feedback from stakeholders via surveys and large/small groupmeetings. The chairs reported their progress to the superintendent and the KSDLT at themonthly meeting. Each standard chair completed the ratings, narratives and strengths/areas toimprove. Their reports were reviewed by the superintendent and the KSDLT then entered intothe self-study document.Kansas School for the DeafPage 1 of 194

CEASD Accreditation Self-Study ReportCOMMUNITY PROFILEEarly History of OlatheThe town of Olathe was founded in 1857, getting its name from the Shawnee word for“beautiful”. After being the site of much activity during the America Civil War, Olathe wenton to become a major stop on the California Trail, the Oregon Trail, and the Santa Fe Trail.Catering to travelers moving along these paths became the primary income source for localbusinesses. Once the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad saw completion, however,these westward trails lost significance, and Olathe withered into obscurity.The construction of the Interstate Highway system in the 1950s saw Olathe linked toneighboring Kansas City, resulting in tremendous residential growth and Olathe becoming partof the Kansas City metropolitan area. The 1980s saw even more of a boom in populationgrowth due to tremendous commercial development.Population GrowthIn 1900, at the turn of the century and almost 40 years after Olathe’s incorporation, thepopulation stood at 3,451. This kept relatively stagnant over the decades that followed due tothe town’s relative obscurity and insignificance.By the end of the 1940s, Olathe had seen a 6% increase in the population, bringing it up to justshy of 11,000 in 1960. This rise continued with an increase of almost 7,000 people by 1970,and an additional 19,000 people by the end of the decade.These numbers have continued to steadily rise year by year, and this growth can be mainlyattributed to the construction of the Interstate Highway, bringing Olathe’s proximity and accessto and from nearby Kansas City ever closer, and making it more accessible for surroundingtowns and cities.While Olathe’s population is just over 139,605 in 2019, some estimates peg its population at300,000 within 20 years y-file.htmlKansas School for the DeafPage 2 of 194

CEASD Accreditation Self-Study ReportCity of Olathe and KSD Grew Up TogetherOlathe, the home of the Kansas School for the Deaf, along with other surrounding cities is thesecond largest Deaf Community in the United States. KSD is considered the center of thiscommunity and has a long history of working with city and county officials (i.e., developmentof MOU pertaining to the provision of Kansas Senate Bill 367 and the Kansas School Safetyand Security Act).This is to acknowledge Olathe’s culture that truly embraces the Deaf and Hard of Hearing andoffers services and programs for the community. Olathe rates at the top of nearly everycategory measured, including culture, access to medical care, and community programs.Examples of the services that Olathe provides are: Olathe Medical Center provides a free 24-hour interpreter service called Hear for Youfor D/HH patients and their families. A network of 17 ASL interpreters are on call atall times to assure medical care will progress unhindered by communication problems.Olathe Medical Center patients are provided language interpretation via interpreterson-site or through Virtual Remote Interpreting services. This service also includesinterpreting services for Olathe Medical Center, Miami County Medical Center, theoffices of staff physicians, wellness programs, childbirth preparation classes andsupport groups. All five high schools in the Olathe Public School District offer American SignLanguage classes as a foreign language. The City of Olathe makes a deliberate effort to include deaf people. City Councilmeetings are interpreted. The Mayor of Olathe appoints board members to include deafrepresentatives on city committees including the Police Advisory Board and Personswith Disabilities Advisory Board. Also, the city provides free smoke detectors to deafresidents.Olathe Public Schools (USD 233)Dual PlacementBecause Olathe is a unique community that includes individuals and families who are deaf orhard-of-hearing and has been the home of KSD for over 150 years, Olathe resident studentsand students residing in the dormitory at KSD have the option of attending classes at both KSDand Olathe Public Schools (OPS) if this is determined by the IEP team to be the least restrictiveenvironment. KSD has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Olathe SchoolsDistrict under the guidance of the Transition Facilitator at KSD and the Deaf and Hard ofHearing Consultant for the Olathe Schools. Interaction between deaf/hard of hearing studentsand hearing students in an integrated setting can be valuable, desirable and educationallyKansas School for the DeafPage 8 of 194

CEASD Accreditation Self-Study Reportappropriate. There are opportunities for a broader range of academic, vocational, and socialexperiences. The option for KSD students to take courses in the Olathe Public School Districtis determined by the student’s needs, abilities and desires with input and feedback fromclassroom teachers, the LEA, parents and school administrators. Dual placement is addressedand determined at the IEP meeting. Students interested in taking one or more classes at anOlathe public school will need to follow the policies and procedures that have been set. A copyof the Dual Placement guidelines is available upon request.Another agreement in place with USD 233 is for our students to be able to take classes at thecenter-based Olathe Advanced Technical Center (OATC). The purpose of this agreementbetween KSD and Olathe is for KSD students to have the opportunity to receive educationalservices in the areas of career and technical education. The Olathe School District isresponsible for interpreter services for students who reside within Olathe Public Schoolboundaries. KSD is responsible for interpreter services for non-Olathe students.Alumni AssociationThe KSD Alumni Association (KSDAA) continues to be a very vibrant organization thatprovides real life benefits for our students. Alumni also donate their valuable time to offercareer support to current students as well as additional funds for student needs. The purpose ofthe KSDAA is to foster a spirit of loyalty and to promote the general welfare of the school.Every year they alternatively host Hall of Fame and Distinguished Leader/Service eventswhich run concurrent with the 25th, 50th & 75th class reunions.Museum of Deaf History, Arts and Culture (MDHAC)Olathe is home to the MDHAC which is the only independently owned and public museumabout Deaf history, arts and culture in the country.

Efforts are underwayto renew the MOU for an additional two years. This agreement allows KSD to use the MNUcampus to transfer, shelter and provide care in the event of an emergency situation that rendersthe KSD campus unsafe and/or unusable. The two schools have a strong history of support.Kansas School for the DeafPage 10 of 194

CEASD Accreditation Self-Study ReportSCHOOL PROFILEThe History of KSDThe Kansas School for the Deaf is the oldest state educational institution in the State of Kansas.The School was founded by Philip A. Emery, a deaf man who had been a student and teacherat the Indiana School for the Deaf until 1860. Emery had come to the valley of the WakarusaRiver to start a new life. He became acquainted with a neighbor, Jonathan R. Kennedy, whohad three deaf children. Kennedy was pleased to discover a deaf educator nearby, as there wasno institution for the education of the deaf in Kansas. Kennedy tried and became successful inpersuading Emery to begin a private school for the deaf. So, with 250 borrowed from arelative of Kennedy's, he set out with Emery to find a good location for the school. Emerylocated a small house with two rooms and an attic in Baldwin City that could be rented for fivedollars per month. Although the school officially opened in October of 1861, it wasn't untilDecember 9th that the school welcomed its first student. Elizabeth Studebaker from Clintonarrived with her father, along with some ham, butter and eggs. These items, along with thefollowing week's arrival of a wagon load of corn, served as the barter for the school costs ofroughly 2.50 per week.On March 5, 1862, the first Kansas legislation was passed to assist the school by appropriatinga sum of 500 for the "purpose of assisting Professor P.A. Emery" and twenty-five cents perday per student. For this, Emery was required to report to the auditor of Kansas the number ofpupils he taught and the number of days each attended.August 21, 1863, nearly saw the early demise of the school. William Clarke Quantrill and hisfree-state opposed Raiders had sacked and burned the nearby town of Lawrence and wereheaded to Baldwin City, probably intending to destroy the town and everyone in it. However,Major Preston B. Plumb, with 200 Union Cavalry soldiers, along with Jim Lane and assortedfarmers, intercepted Quantrill before they reached Baldwin City, thus saving the littleschoolhouse that was the beginning of the Kansas School for the Deaf.The School was scheduled to move to Olathe, but the legislators of this time were debatingover the location of many of the State's newly formed institutions. A School for the Deaflocated in a legislator's hometown would represent prestige and a source of employment forhis constituents. Some legislators believed that all State agencies should be located in Topeka,and so in the Fall of 1864, the Kansas School for the Deaf was moved to Topeka where it waslocated for one year before moving back to Baldwin City in 1865. Problems increased aboutthe location of the School and there was a three-way political dispute between Olathe, BaldwinCity, and Topeka as to which city would get the School for the Deaf. W.H. Fishback, a senatorfrom Olathe, was able to get a bill passed and signed into law by Governor Carney on February12, 1864, that the School for the Deaf would be located in Olathe, Kansas.Kansas School for the DeafPage 11 of 194

CEASD Accreditation Self-Study ReportOn November 15, 1866, the Kansas School for the Deaf, with its 18 students, moved into anewly constructed stone building in Olathe. The building was torn down in 1886 to make wayfor a new administration, dormitory building. By the year 1893 the enrollment of the schoolhad soared to more than two hundred students. In 1934 the present Roth Administration andDormitory Building was built to accommodate the increasing enrollment. The school was firstknown as the Asylum for the Deaf and Dumb and in 1885 the name was changed to the KansasInstitution for the Education of the Deaf and Dumb. In 1896, the school was named the Schoolfor the Deaf. In 1905, the legislature enacted a law that made attendance of all deaf personsbetween the ages of six and twenty-one compulsory unless they attended another specialschool.The Kansas School for the Deaf continues as a large center school for deaf children in Kansas.The school is known for its academic excellence in pre-college preparation and its career andtransition program leading to job placement upon graduation. The Kansas School for the Deafis also noted for its winning athletic teams (National Deaf Champions in football, basketball,and volleyball) and still boasts of beating the University of Kansas in baseball in 1897 and1900.The Kansas School for the Deaf is a source of pride for all Kansans. Our history tells of theircommitment to the mission of quality education for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (D/HH)children of Kansas.Campus-Based and Outreach ProgramsKansas School for the Deaf (KSD) serves as a center-based educational option to provide afree and appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment (i.e., the mostaccessible environment) to students who are D/HH throughout Kansas. Additionally, KSD hasan Outreach department which serves as a statewide resource for students, families, agencies,programs and educational placements that serve students who are D/HH in their local schooldistricts.Kansas School for the DeafPage 12 of 194
