Grades 9-12 Continuous Learning Resources
In addition to the long-distance learning program going into effect from Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools, we also want to make sure that our parents and students have an abundance of educational activities, projects, games, and other resources available as needed. For that reason, KCKPS staff have compiled the following items for your own use, to supplement learning for all who might need or want more in the coming months. If you have any question, concerns or additions to these listings, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
