Welcome to the Office of Board Services

On behalf of the KCPS Board of Directors, welcome to the Office of Board Services web section. We are pleased you have taken the time to learn more about your School Board.
The Kansas City Public Schools is guided by a nine-member Board of Directors
elected to four-year terms by the district’s patrons. The Board of Directors has many duties including:
- Monitoring the use of financial and human resources
- Educational planning and evaluation
- Appointing the chief administrator, the Superintendent of Schools
- Facilities management
The Office of Board Services is the administrative arm of the Board of Directors. The Board meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Board of Education building, 1211 McGee St. There are some exceptions to the schedule: view and download the Board's official schedule
