Department of Education (KDE) provides a variety of supports to schools and
districts to identify students who may be off-track for College and Career
Readiness, promotion, and/or on-time graduation and provide interventions to
support students until they earn a diploma.
Registration for the 2019 Persistence to Graduation Summit: Safe and Supportive Learning is now open!

EILA credit and CEUs for social workers will be available.
Registration is free on a first come, first serve basis. All attendees are responsible for registering themselves. Use the discount code PTG2019 in order to attend at no charge when you register. You must use this discount code to avoid being charged a registration fee.
A total of 16 credit hours of EILA will be available to administrators attending the 2019 Persistence to Graduation Summit. EILA certificates worth one hour of credit will be provided at the end of the 16 applicable sessions. Facilitators in each session will provide hard copies of certificates since they are the only ones who are able to verify attendance. Sessions providing EILA credit will be noted in the summit app and Schedule at a Glance for your reference. Please note that EILA certificates cannot be provided after the summit or sent electronically. Thank you in advance for being attentive to your EILA needs and requesting a certificate at the end of those sessions offering credit.
