In case of inclement weather over a snow-covered Union Station

With colder weather arriving, we have been planning for the potential of snow/inclement weather days and Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) days for the upcoming winter season in KCPS. With this, we wanted to communicate how we will conduct any upcoming snow day plans.

Marketing, Communications & Community Engagement

In the Division of Communications and Engagement, our purpose is to assist Kansas City Public Schools to provide a high-quality education that prepares all of our students, regardless of background or circumstance, for success in college, career and life.

Our Marketing, Communications and Community Engagement team believes 1.) we have a responsibility to communicate effectively with internal and external customers; 2.) that focused, meaningful public engagement supports the district’s goals, and that effective communication:

  • is a two-way process with internal and external customers.
  • helps increase student performance, innovation and well-being.
  • is the responsibility of every employee of the district.
  • is in the best interest of students and staff.

We support KCPS’s strategic initiatives through:

  1. Internal and External Communications
  2. Marketing and Advertising
  3. News and Information
  4. Media Relations
  5. Event Communication Assistance
  6. Web Services
