To be a leading force in the support, education and expansion of Kansas Parents as Teachers (PAT) model affiliate programs so that all Kansas children will develop to their fullest potential. KPATA strives to heighten visibility of quality parent education in the state by partnering with policy leadership to ensure positive growth and development of children, support for parents and effective systems for equitable access to quality early childhood and parent education programs statewide. KPATA supports Parents as Teachers model affiliate programs with school districts and within other program delivery systems by facilitating trainings and continuing education opportunities. Additionally, the organization supports the development of quality supervisors and coordinators throughout the state providing opportunities for networking and training. KPATA supports the drive towards quality excellence for Parents as Teachers model affiliates in Kansas by supporting Quality Endorsement through Parents as Teachers National Center.

KPATA achieves it's mission by supporting families, parent educators, and PAT affiliates across the state of Kansas. This is done through advocacy, training, and providing a strong statewide support for the work of PAT in Kansas and the work of our various statewide partners.

KPATA has been operating in Kansas since 2008 and has provided for the ongoing needs to support PAT programs on a statewide level. The first organizational meeting was held in 2000 and the founders began to lay the groundwork for an influential organization. Sixty-nine charter members joined on February 22, 2001. Bylaws were created, and officers were elected. PAT Day at the Capitol became a signature event of the organization. The first year over 2000 contacts were made to legislators through the grassroots organization to support a $2 million increase for Parents As Teachers programs in Kansas. Based on the organization’s leadership reputation during the last few years KPATA has also forged a strong working alliance with the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE). The organization entered into a contract with KSDE to organize and facilitate Parents As Teachers trainings throughout the state, develop, write, and deliver regional trainings through the state, co-sponsor conferences, and continue to manage the roll out of the Quality Standards including the hiring of consultants, training, consultation and technical assistance. The board is comprised of PAT stakeholders from throughout the state, with a proven track record of advocating for families at the state, and local level. The full board meets monthly. The staff is comprised of the Executive Director, Administrative Assistant, Development Director, and Quality Implementation Director.

Progress is measured annually through evaluations with staff and through grant reporting. Additionally staff meetings focus around progress to goals as outlined by the Executive Director by the needs of the programs KPATA is currently operating.

KPATA is excited to have recently launched our Bright Futures Program in partnership with Kansas Department for Children and Families. This program provides PAT services to families across the state who have children at imminent risk of entering foster care. This grant is made possible through the Family First Protection Services Act. We look forward to expanding this program throughout the state in the coming year as the grant has recently been renewed for the next grant cycle.
