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.

Special Education

Kansas City Public Schools ensures a free and appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment for students eligible for special education or Section 504.

Students must qualify in one of Missouri’s thirteen eligibility categories to be eligible for special education. Once eligible, an individual education plan (IEP) is developed by the IEP team. Students receive IEP services from highly qualified teachers and related services staff.

Students with documented medical concerns may be eligible under Section 504 for appropriate modifications and/or accommodations in the general education setting.

Parent who suspect their child may have a disability or may qualify for a Section 504 Plan should contact the special education department at 816-418-8941 or any KCPS staff member at their child’s school.

Vision

Kansas City Public Schools envisions its schools as places where every student will develop a deep understanding of the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue higher education, obtain family-supporting employment, contribute to the civic well-being of the community, and have the opportunity for a rewarding and fulfilling life.

Child Find

It is the policy of the state of Missouri that all students with disabilities, residing in the state, and who need special education and/or related services are identified, located, and evaluated.

Special Education Services

A comprehensive range of services is offered by Kansas City Public School District that assist special education students in reaching their potential within the least restrictive environment.
