A Letter From Dr. Bedell

Hello, KCPS families, friends, staff and visitors!

Dr Mark Bedell

Our Quest Summer School program begins on Thursday, June 6! I think it's worth remembering why summer school is so important for our students. We know that children who have high-quality, engaging learning experiences during their summer break are able to retain more of the gains they made in the previous school year and are better prepared to hit their stride when the new school year starts.

It's quite simply true that our children will thrive when they have the kinds of opportunities that we are offering them this summer. Our Quest Summer School program will allow our students to gain hands-on and engaging experiences, and I look forward to hearing about all of the exciting learning going on this summer. Our students need these types of high-quality summer experiences if they are going to stay on track. This is going to be a very productive season for KCPS!

Yours in education,
Dr. Mark Bedell
Superintendent of Schools
