KCPS orchestra students perform at the KCPS Fine Arts Showcase on Thursday, April 28, 2022.

"In schools, children need to have a place of belonging. They need to know they're accepted. They have to find their niche, that thing they’re good at,” said KCPS Deputy Superintendent Dr. Jennifer Collier.

Five people stand in the KCPS boardroom. They are smiling as one receives an award.

At the Wednesday, March 9, 2022, Board of Education meeting, three KCPS employees were recognized as “Terrific Teammates” for their contributions to their school communities.

Current KCPS students will automatically “roll up” to the next grade, and no action is required from parents/guardians at this time. Please do not submit an application for new enrollment, as this will cause processing delays.

With guidance from our trusted community health partners, the Kansas City Public Schools Board of Directors and administration agreed on Wednesday, March 9, 2022, to end our mask mandate, effective immediately.

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.
