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.

With guidance from our trusted community health partners, the Kansas City Public Schools Board of Directors and administration agreed on Wednesday, March 9, 2022, to end our mask mandate, effective immediately.

Title IX

At Kansas City Public Schools, it is very important to us that every child, staff member and community member feel welcome, safe and valued as an individual. In order to ensure a safe environment for all students and to comply with the law and our own policies, we have developed training both for staff and students around Title IX, the federal statute that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex. 

Relevant staff attending Title IX trainings for Title IX Coordinator, Title IX Investigator, Title IX Decision Maker, and Title IX Appeals.  Training materials may be reviewed at https://tuethkeeney.com/tueth-keeney-title-ix-webinars/.
