KISA - Who We Are

Kent Intermediate Superintendent Association (KISA)

Kent ISD provides services to twenty local public districts and to all non-public schools within its boundaries. Directly or indirectly, we serve almost 300 schools, more than 120,000 students and 7,000 educators. One of 56 ISD's in Michigan, Kent ISD provides a wide range of services to meet the needs of the educators, families and communities we serve.

KISA is a committee comprised of Superintendents from the twenty constituent public districts, as well as the Superintendents from the Christian and Catholic School systems in Kent ISD. The group meets monthly to address the following areas:

Student Achievement

  • Secondary Principals, Elementary Principals, KSBO, Special Education, KLC, KHR, KTAC

Engagement

  • Grassroots/Legislative, School News Network, WMTT Regional Advocacy

Inclusion

  • Global Competencies, Collaboration

2021-2022 Goals

  • • Every child prepared for kindergarten
    • Every student reading at grade level in 3rd grade
    • Every student performing at grade level in math at 8th grade
    • Every student college and career ready

KISA is led by Kent ISD Superintendent, Ron Koehler. Meetings of the whole KISA are held at the Kent ISD usually on the second Friday of each month. KISA members also meet regionally to discuss educational issues unique to their districts.
