Justice in the Schools

Justice in the Schools (JTS) is a FREE legal service provided to students and families within the Kansas City Public School system. This joint project is made possible through the supportive efforts of the KCPS school district and School Smart KC.

The legal clinic defends families of KCPS students against wrongful evictions to prevent homelessness and keep students in their current school.
