Blueprint 2030: Help KCPS Set Goals for the Future

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.

Celebrate Our 2021 School Teachers of the Year

Families who applied for kindergarten, pre-K or a Signature School by the initial deadline of Monday, Feb. 15, received emails Wednesday, March 3 with offers to their first, second or third choice school.

Mentoring

Kansas City Public Schools has embraced a district-wide strategy to engage more students in school-based mentoring programs. Mentoring within schools has become an increasingly popular and effective way to bring a caring adult or older peer relationship to the lives of more youth. The school setting provides an opportunity to reach students in an environment that also allows access to educational, recreational, and developmental support to help enhance mentoring relationships.

Kansas City Public Schools offers a diverse portfolio of mentoring options for community volunteers seeking to mentor youth. Our programs are designed to equip each student with the unique type of support that best meets their needs. KCPS Mentoring Programs is the recipient of the Outstanding Educational Achievement Program Award (2018), awarded by the South Kansas City Alliance.
