Dr. Mark Bedell established the Superintendent’s Scholarship to help graduating seniors who have faced extremely adverse conditions. Students receive $1,000 directly and $5,000 to the school of their choice.
Congratulations to Dr. Jimmie Bullard, Bridgette Crutchfield and Romanda Franklin-Hamilton! These principals were recognized as Outstanding Administrators at the June 8, 2022, KCPS Board of Directors meeting.
With gratitude and mutual respect, today we share with our community that Dr. Bedell will be leaving KCPS later this summer. Dr. Jennifer Collier has been named Interim Superintendent for the 2022-23 school year.
"In schools, children need to have a place of belonging. They need to know they're accepted. They have to find their niche, that thing they’re good at,” said KCPS Deputy Superintendent Dr. Jennifer Collier.
