Forming an Extension District
The Kansas Extension District Law, passed in 1991, gave local Extension Councils the opportunity to partner with one or more counties to form a district. Forming a district involves agreements between the local Extension Councils and county commissioners.
Districting allows local citizens access to the expertise of additional agents. As part of a district team, agents can dedicate more time to a specific area of program focus. At the same time, agents have access to more resources and support as they work together in a larger team.
To learn more about forming an Extension District, go to the Forming an Extension District Module. This learning module is designed for boards to use at a meeting as they evaluate their interest in forming a district. Board members can also use the module for self-study.
