KCPS orchestra students perform at the KCPS Fine Arts Showcase on Thursday, April 28, 2022.

"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.

At the Wednesday, March 9, 2022, Board of Education meeting, three KCPS employees were recognized as “Terrific Teammates” for their contributions to their school communities.

Current KCPS students will automatically “roll up” to the next grade, and no action is required from parents/guardians at this time. Please do not submit an application for new enrollment, as this will cause processing delays.

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. JTS also helps KCPS families with many other legal issues that negatively affect student attendance. All legal services are free of charge to eligible families within the school district.
