How one Kansas school district is fighting the education gap

Local News

TOPEKA (KSNT) – One symptom of the pandemic is children forgetting how to socialize with each other.

Two Shawnee Heights Elementary Schools are working with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Topeka for a new summer enrichment program

The goal is to help 1st through 6th grader students remember how to socialize and keep them learning throughout the summer months. 

Also the USD 450 Shawnee Heights school district has hired three more 2nd and 3rd grade teachers in an attempt to close the education gap. They will begin this fall. These additional hires will help keep class sizes down, allowing teachers to focus more on individual student needs.
