Mix, match, customize the modern world is an array of choices that permeate many aspects of our daily lives. Take for example public, PreK-12 school choices approved by the Kansas State Board of Education. While not all options are listed here and not all are found in every school district, the choices include:
School systems. Families may choose traditional neighborhood schools, the KSDE on-line school, experimental schools approved by KSDE, charter schools that report to a local school district or home schooling.
Programs within traditional schools. These include the high-rigor International Baccalaureate programs, advanced placement, programs for high-risk students, magnet schools that center on a specific content area such as engineering or the arts and technical, career-preparation programs.
