BACKGROUND INFORMATION
 
WHAT is the Master Plan?

Kansas City Public Schools is conducting a master planning study to maximize opportunities for student achievement and to increase enrollment by delivering the best academic and extra-curricular programs possible within the available financial resources.  The master plan will look at issues such as: academic priorities, extra-curricular needs, facility needs, transportation needs, enrollment boundaries, budgetary impacts.

 

WHO? 

We need the voices and perspectives of parents, students, teachers, staff, and community members to inform this plan.  KCPS has hired the consulting team of MGT and David Mason & Associates to work with local stakeholders, conduct an assessment and present recommendations to the school board and Superintendent.

 

HOW?

KCPS will be gathering community feedback through a variety of medium.  MGT will conduct focus groups with targeted stakeholder groups.  KCPS is hosting “community conversations”, which are open to the public and a great opportunity to share your perspective.  Please check out the master plan calendar and flyer for details.  Community stakeholders can also participate on-line at www.kcpsforum.org and/or via a quick text survey.

 

WHEN?

The master plan kicked-off community engagement in November of 2014.  MGT will present its findings and scenarios/alternatives for consideration to the community in March 2015 (dates TBD) with final recommendations presented to the school board and Superintendent in late March.  We expect the implementation of recommendations to be a phased process.
