We’re asking staff members, students, parents/guardians and others to join us in providing feedback by participating in our Thoughtexchange platform. This is an opportunity for our stakeholders to offer their responses to questions about the future of our schools.

District Advisory Committee

DAC KCPS District Advisory Committee

Kansas City Public Schools has a District Advisory Committee (DAC) that meets regularly. Meetings prior to the 2020-2021 school year were held in the KCPS District School Board Room at the Board of Education Building (2901 Troost Ave.)

For the first semester of the 2020-2021 school year, District Advisory Committee meetings will be held virtually.

Meeting dates are as follows:

  • September 16, 2020, 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
  • November 11, 2020, 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
  • January 20, 2020, 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
  • March 17, 2021, 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Every school is asked to have a DAC representative, and parents and community members are also welcome to attend. The DAC addresses school issues and concerns and allows parents to network, share ideas and solve problems cooperatively. In addition, the DAC serves in an advisory role to the District’s Board of Education.
