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.

Success Academy at Knotts

At Success Academy at Knotts, we believe all students have the talent and potential to succeed. Each student is provided with an individualized educational environment that addresses the social and academic challenges that they faced in a traditional school. All students receive an intake interview; this allows staff to meet with the student and parents to set expectations and give students ownership of their success. Students are then moved to a classroom with a small student-to-teacher ratio, allowing students to excel academically. Although Knotts is an alternative to the traditional classroom, students are still held to the same academic assessments and goals as all KCPS schools.
