KCPS Repurposing Initiative

The Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS), through its Repurposing Initiative, is taking an innovative and comprehensive approach to promote the reuse/ redevelopment of 30 of its closed school sites. The Repurposing Initiative, which began as a yearlong community engagement and planning process to develop community-driven reuse strategies, has transitioned from planning into action. Guided by the community feedback and technical reuse assessments outlined in the reuse strategies, the KCPS is in the process of soliciting proposals and promoting opportunities to reposition these school sites so that they once again serve as valuable assets for the Kansas City community.  

If you are interested in getting involved or would like to be informed of upcoming meetings, please contact us at repurposing@kcpublicschools.org.
