School Site Details

Scarritt School
Site Photo - Satchel Paige

Satchel Paige was constructed as a middle school as part of the desegregation effort in 1991. The building was serving as an elementary school when it closed in 2016 as part of the Master Plan and moved to the mothballed list as it had been identified as a future site for a third early childhood center. As KCPS pursues opportunities to expand pre-k seats, staff has been and continues to explore interim use and/or long-term co-location opportunities with partner agencies.  The site also served as a temporary location for the Operations/Securities team as the former Franklin School site was renovated as their permanent home.  

Paige continues to be considered the top candidate for a third early childhood site due to its location, layout, readiness to reopen (lower than average costs), and potential for co-location of a partner agency that could be complimentary with an early childhood site. As such, it is being held on the mothballed list for future district use.
