Between November 2015 and February 2016, KCPS staff collected feedback from students, parents, staff and community members (38 meetings, 832 meeting participants, 1,321 surveys) about the draft recommendations. On February 10, 2016, KCPS Administration presented revised master plan recommendations to the Board of Education, which worked to address the additional ideas, concerns and priorities heard from the KCPS community. The revised master plan recommendations outline a plan to build stronger schools and stronger communities. The plan identifies programs and policies to increase academic achievement (reduced K-2 class size, year-round school, etc), enhance co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, and improve transportation services (reduce school walk boundary from 1.5 miles to ½ mile). KCPS Board of Education approved the recommendations as presented on February 10th. KCPS is now beginning to work with parents, students, staff and the community to implement the recommendations and to ensure a smooth transition for our families and staff.
KCPS Administration would like to thank all the students, parents, school staff and community members who participated in the process and shared their feedback.
