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.

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.

Evening Academy

Evening Academy

Evening Academy is a high school program designed for students looking for a flexible pathway toward graduation.  Students will earn credits toward a traditional high school diploma.  Students can enroll as a full time Evening Academy student, part-time student, or dual-enrolled student.  Students who are behind can catch up in a safe, supportive environment while being dual-enrolled at their home high school or enrolled as a full time Evening Academy student. Students can also create room in their schedule for additional courses and electives by taking credits through Evening Academy.  We have an option for every student!

Students will use an online software program and blended instruction to obtain credits toward a high school diploma. Classes will meet Monday through Thursday afternoons and evenings for quarterly 9-week sessions. Schedules will be developed with the instructor to best meet students’ goals.
