Post Secondary

The Office of Innovation and Postsecondary Programming is part of the Department of Equity, Inclusion and Innovation, and exists to maximize opportunities for students to gain college credit while in high school.  Kansas City Public Schools is dedicated to increasing college credit awareness, exposure, equity and access for all students.

As part of the Department of Equity, Inclusion and Innovation, the Office of Innovation and Postsecondary Programming has the responsibility of ensuring equitable practices and implementation are in place for all college credit access programming.
