On Wednesday, Oct. 12, KCPS presented a bold plan for our students’ future to the Board of Directors. These recommendations are the culmination of years of engagement with students, staff and families. At its core, Blueprint 2030 is an academic vision for KCPS that gives students the experiences they deserve. We can expand access to the fine arts, create new project-based learning opportunities and even build new schools.

We hope you'll join us to review this plan. Throughout October and November, we will host eleven community conversations to gather feedback on our plan. We encourage you to attend any meeting that works with your schedule.
