Building PD Plans Folder Linked Into KansaSTAR

from Federal Programs
A Building PD Plans folder has been linked to each building’s School Improvement Plan in KansaSTAR.

Please use the folder icon in the top right hand corner of your main screen in KansaSTAR to access the Building PD Plans folder. When you click on this main folder, your school’s Building PD Plan folder will display in your window.

A shortcut link to the KCKPS 22-23 District PD Plan has been placed in each folder for quick and easy access by the BLT. Buildings should use their respective folder to store their Building PD Plans and artifacts.

KCKPS Staffing Process Sheet for Annual Spring Budget Planning & Meetings

from Federal Programs

Any staffing position included in the building budget must be an existing district approved position with an existing district approved job description, and district approved compensation scale for the following school year.

Position titles and/or job descriptions of staff included and approved in the building budget cannot be changed (during the summer or following school year) to something different than what was discussed and approved during the spring budget meetings. (Titles and actual duties must remain consistent with district approved job descriptions and associated district approved compensation scales.)

Additional positions cannot be added and charged to the budget after the spring budget meetings (during the summer or following school year), without first discussing with Federal Programs, Human Resources, and Finance departments.

Any newly created positions must be vetted and approved through the Human Resources Department and the principal must provide the approved job description from the Human Resource Department, as well as the approved compensation scale for the new positions. Positions cannot be added (even as a projection) in the building budget, unless they’ve been vetted and approved through the Human Resources Department.
