School Site Details

Ladd School

KCPS and the Oak Park Neighborhood Association hosted a reuse proposal presentation for the former Ladd site on Thursday, May 13. This was an opportunity for the community to hear about LocalCode KC’s proposed reuse for the site and to ask questions to the proposal team. Please see below for a copy of LocalCode KC’s presentation. KCPS requests that community members take a quick survey to share your feedback on the reuse proposal, as community feedback is an important component of the district’s evaluation process.

Feedback Survey

KCPS is currently accepting proposals for the Ladd School site on a first come first served basis.

In March 2017, KCPS and Palestine Economic Development Corporation (PEDC) entered into a sales contract for the redevelopment of the Ladd School as an assisted living center. In March 2018, PEDC advised KCPS that it is no longer pursuing the Ladd school site for redevelopment due to uncertainty regarding historic tax credits. PEDC will be pursuing the development of an assisted living center an another location.
