Help Transform the Student Code of Conduct During the District Advisory Committee (DAC) Meeting on Nov. 11

It is almost time for our next District Advisory Committee (DAC) general body meeting! The DAC addresses school issues and concerns, allows you to share ideas and solve problems cooperatively and helps advise the district’s Board of Directors. Our schools can’t do it alone; we need your involvement and support to succeed. 

Kansas City Public Schools is in the process of transforming the current Student Code of Conduct to better support and serve all of our students. In this DAC meeting, Dr. Lateshia Woodley, KCPS Executive Director for the Division of Student Support Services, will provide a presentation on understanding trauma and adverse childhood experiences, and how and why this is an integral part of the work that is being done to transform the Student Code of Conduct. After the presentation, we will engage in small group discussions to get feedback on various sections of the current code.  

Additionally, we will hold elections for the 2020-2021 DAC Executive Board (DACX). The DACX is made up of seven parents or community members. The responsibilities of the DACX include: planning DAC general body meetings, supporting parent organizations at KCPS district schools, identifying parent priorities and concerns, and communicating the voice of the parents/community to KCPS Board and administrators. If you are interested in serving on the 2020-2021 DACX, please contact Courtney Adams by Nov. 4 at cadams1@kcpublicschools.org or 816-418-7455. For more information on DAC, visit www.kcpublicschools.org/dac.
