The purpose of Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS) is to provide a quality education that prepares all of our students, regardless of background or circumstances, for success in college, career and life. We will produce scholars who are high-achieving critical thinkers, prepared to succeed in a constantly changing world and engaged in the improvement of their communities.

In efforts to address the social-emotional needs of students and families the Department of Students Support Services is implementing a Tele-Health Service Delivery Model.
Kansas City Public Schools ensures a free and appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment for students eligible for special education or Section 504.
It is the mission of the Transportation Department to improve student achievement by providing safe, timely and efficient transportation of all eligible KCPS students.
Breakfast and lunch are provided to every student in the KCPS, free-of-charge.
Our district serves a large number of students from families that speak languages other than English in the home. We offer several different programs to meet the needs of these students.
"Our schools are not factories that produce identical goods. The community has given us the tough, but invaluable job of addressing the singular educational needs of all our students. Without exception, every student deserves an education that is tailored to support their success.”
Dr. Mark T. Bedell, KCPS Superintendent
Mentoring within schools has become an increasingly popular and effective way to bring a caring adult or older peer relationship to the lives of more youth.
The Kansas City Public Schools Education Foundation was established in 2012 as a self-perpetuating, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization to promote quality education in Kansas City Public Schools.
Participating in parent leadership organizations is a great way to get involved in the education of children. Adults who take an active role in education positively impact future generations of leaders, workers and parents. These adults also get a chance to see firsthand what goes on inside schools within the Kansas City, Missouri School District.
By giving your time you're not only helping KCPS, you're also helping the communities our schools support and thrive in.
