HB 2085 creates the Students’ Right to Know Act, which requires the Kansas State
Department of Education (KSDE) to ensure the distribution, electronic or otherwise, of certain information to all students in grades 7 through 12. Information to be distributed will include:
● The State Board of Regents degree prospectus information;
Kansas Legislative Research Department 83 2021 Summary of Legislation
Kansas State Department of Education Degree Information; HB 2085
● The placement and salary report of the Kansas Training Information Program;
● Any other information relevant to students’ understanding of potential earnings as
determined by the Department of Labor and each branch of the armed services
of the U.S. military.
The bill also authorizes KSDE to enter into memorandums of understanding and other
agreements with state agencies or other entities as needed to accomplish this task.
