At Kansas City Public Schools, we know that we’re preparing students for jobs that don’t even exist yet. Starting with the 2014-2015 school year, every single KCPS student is being equipped with a laptop in order to ensure that they are fluent in technology by the time they go to college and launch their careers.
Starting Tuesday, Dec. 1, parents and guardians can begin enrolling their children in our eight Signature Schools for the 2016-2017 academic year. Each of these schools has specialized themes or programs, and they support highly motivated students. Please note that each school also has its own enrollment requirements and standards. Learn more by visiting www.kcpublicschools.org/Signature, calling 816-418-7505 or emailing email@example.com.
On Saturday, Nov. 14, over 500 middle and high school students from six of Kansas City’s urban school districts participated in PREP-KC’s Annual Math Relays. Math Relays provide students with opportunities to complete in a regional mathematics competition. Students, teachers and parents from the region gather to celebrate student accomplishments in math. Students from Foreign Language Academy, Paseo Academy of Fine and Performing Arts, Southwest Early College Campus and East High School did an exemplary job at this event and earned awards in many categories.
Kansas City Public Schools has entered into a sales contract with the Nazarene Publishing House to purchase several buildings located at 29th Street and Troost Avenue. The contract is part of a plan to relocate the central office and consolidate the KCPS headquarters and Maintenance, Operations, Security and Engineering facilities from two facilities into one, providing improved access for KCPS families while also significantly reducing operating costs, freeing up additional funds that can be reallocated to student programs. KCPS is currently conducting due diligence on the Nazarene Publishing House facilities, which includes getting feedback from KCPS families at a public meeting to be held on Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 5:30pm at 1211 McGee St. in the Small Auditorium.
