The Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools recently conducted a facilities study, which details more than $500 million in deferred maintenance needs. The district has been working with members of the community to determine the best way to move forward with addressing these needs. In order to move forward, community input is needed. Please take ten minutes to give us your input, by taking the short survey below.
