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.

Success By Six

From the moment they’re born, children are wired to learn. Research shows that 90 percent of the brain’s growth occurs by age 6.

United Way Success By 6 Resource Centers aim to ensure every young child in our community is healthy, safe, nurtured and enters school ready to succeed.

Parents who have used the resource centers say they’ve learned how to:

  • Get respect from their child
  • Develop a discipline plan
  • Deal with a hyperactive child
  • Spend time one-on-one with their child
  • Be the best parent or caregiver they can be
