Dr. Cynthia Lane Announces Retirement
Check out KCPT’s latest Take Note video about farm-to-school food featuring KCKPS Director of Nutritional Services Josh Mathiasmeier. In the video, he talks about the importance of serving students fresh fruits and vegetables to promote healthy eating habits and to make a dent in childhood obesity. The Take Note program takes an in-depth look at education in the Kansas City metropolitan area, where we are, how we got here and where we need to go.

Guaranteed Viable Curriculum

GVC Guides

Guaranteed Viable Curriculum (GVC) Guides provide a guide for what should be taught and when it should be taught throughout the school year to include the focus on literacy across all contents, particularly in writing. The Pacing Guides within the GVC Guides identify when each standard is addressed in the curriculum and the resources available to teach those standards. By following the Pacing Guides and aligning their instruction to the other components of the GVC Guides, teachers in the district are providing a guaranteed and viable curriculum for all students. GVC Guides listed below address English Language Arts/Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies in grades K-12.
