Welcome Back!

King Elementary @ KCMSA staff are pleased to welcome you back for another great school year! You may notice that King students and staff have relocated temporarily to the KCMSA campus at 4848 Woodland Ave for the 2014/2015 school year. We are very excited to continue teaching the bright scholars of King Elementary in our brand new learning environment.
WE NEED YOUR FEEDBACK! Using feedback from community meetings this spring, Hollis + Miller Architects conducted a study to evaluate whether the King/Weeks buildings should be renovated or a new school built at the site. They presented their findings and garnered feedback from meeting participants at the August 7, 2014 King@ KCMSA open house. It's not too late to provide KCPS with your input. View the presentation below and submit your feedback to

King Update

Due to existing building challenges (water infiltration, outdated mechanical systems, etc), Kansas City Public Schools is evaluating facility options for King Elementary School.  Based on the current condition of the building and feedback received from stakeholders at a series of meetings, King students will be relocated temporarily to the KCMSA campus at 4848 Woodland Ave for the 2014/2015 school year.   

KCPS has hired a technical team led by Hollis + Miller Architects to conduct a building assessment in order to determine whether its better for King in the long-term to renovate the existing facilities or build new on an existing site.  On April 3, King parents, staff and community members provided feedback that will be used to better inform and guide Hollis + Miller’s assessment process. CLICK HERE to view the April 3 presentation, community feedback, as well as answers to community questions.

Once the facilities assessment by Hollis + Miller is complete in late April, another meeting will be held with King stakeholders to present the findings and garner additional feedback. That input will be used to develop a recommendation for school board consideration.  Meeting date details will be posted to the school and district websites and distributed to community members and parents via social media, email, etc.  If you would like to be added to the contact list, please email us at
