Took the simple approach the the question and copied and pasted from our State website:
Substantially equivalent period of time
Kansas public schools must conduct classes for 1,116 academic hours (calculated as 186 days x 6 academic hours per day; academic hours consist of 50 minutes of classroom or instructional time.) Nonaccredited private schools in Kansas must be “substantially equivalent” to this. However, they are not required to follow the local public school's academic year or daily class schedule. Private schools are free to set their schedules and academic years as they choose. In meeting this requirement, homeschools include all activities that are considered part of the school's academic program, including:
Classroom instruction and study time;
Activities related to classroom instruction, e.g., field trips, library research, science fairs;
Non-classroom activities similar to those offered in public schools, e.g., music lessons and performances, drama, sports, 4-H;
Activities specific to the private school's philosophy, e.g., for Christian-based private schools, this could include Bible study, Scripture memorization, church and youth group activities, etc.
