Environmental Literacy Plan for Kansas

NEW!  Environmental Literacy Assessment for High School Students is available, click here for more information!  

The Environmental Literacy Plan for Kansas (ELPK) is the culmination of countless hours of work by many dedicated individuals representing public schools, non-formal environmental education providers, government agencies, businesses, colleges, universities and resource agencies throughout the state to develop a comprehensive plan for advancing environmental literacy in the state. Through the efforts and vision of all partners, Kansas is one of only a few states to have a plan that insures our Kansas children gain the knowledge, attitudes, skills necessary to become citizens who make informed and responsible personal and collective decisions and choices about our environment and its natural resources.

Please use this plan as a tool to begin to ensure the environmental literacy of all our Kansas students.  We welcome your feedback and ideas!
