The State Board appoints a Commissioner of Education who serves as its executive director.

The Mission of the State Board of Education is to prepare Kansas students for lifelong success through rigorous, quality academic instruction, career training and character development according to each student’s gifts and talents. The Kansans CAN Vision is to Lead the World in the Success of Each Student.
