Bedell at Graduations 2020

On Thursday, the City Council is scheduled to vote on an incentive package for BlueScope, a billion-dollar multinational corporation. After a 100 percent property tax abatement for 20 years, they want 13 more, holding the City Council hostage by saying they might move to Kansas.

Neighborhood Schools
In Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS), our tuition-free Neighborhood Schools are open to any child who lives within their individual attendance boundaries. These are traditional and high-quality public schools that serve the families in their neighborhoods. Sometimes families ask to enroll their children in Neighborhood Schools outside of their attendance boundaries, and these requests are often granted by KCPS when space allows.
