With cold and flu season upon us, KCPS has many resources for keeping your family healthy this fall. Remember, if your child is ill, please do not send them to school.

Superintendent Search Updates

The Kansas City Public Schools Board of Directors is committed to conducting a robust and transparent search for its next superintendent of schools. The board has approved a contract with JG Consulting. JG Consulting will assist the board's national search for the next KCPS superintendent.

On October 26, the board approved a contract with JG Consulting to assist the board's national search for the next KCPS superintendent.

On November 9, the Board of Directors met with JG Consulting. As part of the search process, the Kansas City School Board of Directors will place a very high emphasis on community engagement. The community’s voice will be critical in helping define the leadership characteristics, qualities and qualifications of our next superintendent. In December, the Board will engage parents, staff, students and a range of community stakeholders to ensure the viewpoints of a broad cross-section of the Kansas City community are represented. Updates regarding community engagement, as well as other aspects of the hiring process, will be shared on this page, during regularly scheduled board meetings and other channels as appropriate.
