KM is partnering with Central Washington University and their Running Start Department to bring Running Start (college credits) to KM starting next year. The CWU Running Start Department is very pleased to be partnering with us to offer either Running Start or College in the High School (Cornerstone) courses to our students. Through the CWU program, high school juniors and seniors are able to take university level courses and receive college credit without leaving our high school campus. This is achieved by our high school administrators and teachers working closely with CWU faculty and staff to provide high school students with the highest quality courses possible. Through this opportunity, students are able to appreciate the academic challenges of college course work and find that the experience helps to clarify educational goals. The majority of classes taken through Central Washington University will transfer to any four-year public university in Washington State, as well as most in-state private universities and other universities across the country.
A safe, sustainable, healthy and respectful school community is one of the strategic goals for the Kent School district. Each spring, Kent School District provides School Climate Surveys to parents, students, and staff. The surveys include questions about expectations for students, school safety, the occurrence of bullying, and respect for diversity. In addition, parents and staff are asked about communication between school and home, awareness of Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), and community involvement. This spring, we will again provide the School Climate Surveys to parents, students, and staff, as we continue to build on strengths while addressing needs. The surveys will be given online to students and staff. We hope that most parents will be able to respond online as well.
