Wellington USD 353 has approved a mask mandate for schools in district

Last year, Unified School District 353 was part of the Kansas State School of Education’s 'Kansans Can School Redesign Project' documentary series.

The Kansas State University crew has put the finishing touches on it and it is ready to roll. The documentary is being featured on PBS-KTWU, which is on Channel 11 in Topeka.

Wellington’s story will air on Oct. 24th, but the channel is not available in Wellington. All episodes will be uploaded to KSDE’s YouTube page in November when all episodes have been aired.
