Recognize an Outstanding Teacher Today!

Help us celebrate exceptional educators in Kansas City Public Schools by nominating a teacher to be the 2023 Teacher of the Year!

The purpose of the KCPS Teacher of the Year program is to recognize our extraordinary classroom teachers' contributions in every school. Teacher quality and effectiveness are the most important school-based factors impacting student learning. Our teachers create a learning environment where children flourish and grow.


Once nominations are submitted, principals will lead a Teacher of the Year selection process for their schools. We will name the 2023 Kansas City Public Schools Teacher of the Year at the awards ceremony in April! Special thanks to the Kansas City Public Schools Education Foundation for sponsoring this program.

'Shop 'Til You Drop' Spree at Office Depot

This summer, Kansas City Public Schools was selected to enroll into Office Depot’s Back-To-School Initiative. Retail stores across the metro raised donations to give back to teachers at one very special school in KCPS. Primitivo Garcia Elementary was chosen to represent KCPS in this year's giveaway. Each teacher received $450 to spend on supplies for their classroom. Thank you, Office Depot, for making this experience possible for our teachers!
