School district wants input on achievement, enrollment

school-district-logoThe Kansas City School District is asking for community input to help it increase student achievement and enrollment. It is hosting several input sessions and also allowing people to submit input online.

The district says it is conducting “a master planning study to maximize opportunities for student achievement and to increase enrollment by delivering the best academic and extra-curricular programs possible within the available financial resources.”

Here’s more from KCPS:

Join your neighbors in one of our community conversations about the future needs of Kansas City Public Schools. You are invited to attend the session closest to your home/school or you can attend any session. In addition, if it’s more convenient, you can provide your input on-line at or using a text-based survey tool (stay tuned for details). What is most important – make your voice heard!

Each session includes the following activities:

  • Information – What you need to know about the master plan currently underway.
  • Input – An opportunity for each person to provide input.  You will be given an electronic “clicker” to use to respond to a series of questions about KCPS’ needs and priorities.
  • Exploration – A small group facilitated discussion designed to allow time to explore the issues identified earlier in the session.
