TOPEKA (KSNT) – This Election Day, students in the Topeka Public Schools district learned the importance of civic engagement. Superintendent Dr. Tiffany Anderson stopped by 27 News Tuesday morning to tell us about this and other happenings in the district.

USD 501 said many students were encouraged to vote this year by partnering with the League of Women Voters and Topeka High School graduate Kelm Lear, who created a video encouraging students to vote.

Dr. Anderson also talked about how the district is celebrating Veterans Day, as well as how TPS is celebrating graduation rates above the national and state average for all high schools.
