How do I know if I am qualified to teach in the KCKPS District?
The Recruiting team evaluates each teacher candidate’s application, resume and experience to determine the type of license an individual has or may be eligible for in accordance with the job posting requirements. The Professional Workforce team provides additional review and assistance, as needed, for all traditional and alternative licenses pathways such as: Restricted Licenses, Expired License, STEM, Out-of-State, CTE, Visiting Scholars, and International teacher programs.

How can I become a Special Education Teacher in the District if I have a general education degree?
We have provided opportunities for general education teachers to become Special Education teachers by paying for their Special Education waiver courses. KSDE allows general education teachers to immediately teach in the Special Education area while obtaining 10 courses that would provide them with a provisional license. This was a result of going back and reviewing applications out of our applicant tracking systems.

Do you review applicants from previous times for current job postings or do I have to apply each time?
It’s always best to reapply for positions that you are interested in pursuing.  We do try to scan old applications but most of the time applicants have already taken other positions especially if the application is more than 30 days old.  Additionally, the Recruiting team constantly scans resumes from multi-licensed teachers, to encourage them to review additional job openings. Invitations are sent to all candidates for our local District Career Fairs. This may include, but is not limited to: to applicants, previous employees who may have left our district and wish to return, and referrals. If a previous employee is able to be rehired, invitations are provided to them as well.

Do you have opportunities for “special assignments” or volunteer opportunities for those who like to work with kids but don’t have teaching degrees?
Teachers are required by state law to be “licensed in order to be in the classroom with students.” We do not hire teachers for “special assignment”.Individuals who come into our schools have to be hired as an employee with our onboarding process (background check, TB test, references) If someone wants to work within our schools and are not hired as an employee, s/he could apply to be a volunteer within a school. To be a volunteer, a person is required to complete an application and background check through the Student Services office. To reach Student Services please call 913-279-2248.

Who makes the decisions about hiring classroom aides?
The budgets are set annually which affects the amount of classroom aides we have within each building. It is our hope that as the school district budget allows, we can continue to offer these positions to some of our KCKPS alumni while they are attending community colleges or universities locally once they obtain either 48 or 60 credit hours which many of our classroom aide jobs require.

Paychecks

Is there a calendar for paycheck schedules?

The Transportation Pay Calendar is linked here. The Pay Calendar for everybody except Transportation is linked here.

How to read the color coded pay schedule: The highlighted weeks are included in each pay period, and you can see the pay period at the bottom of each calendar.  For example, if you work from August 29th thru September 11th this time period will be paid on your 9/30/21 pay check.

How do I identify the extra duty pay on my paycheck?
In the earnings section of your check stub, which you can find in Employee Online, you will see a line under CNT PAY called CNT E/P. This is where your extra duty and/or stipend pay will be listed.

How do I change my payroll tax hold outs?
Go into Employee Online, click Tax Info and then select whatever tax exemption that pertains to you.  (This can only be done 7 days prior to the pay date).

How do I know if my stipend has been paid or when it will be paid out?
The stipend will show on the CNT E/P line of your check stub. There is no other system for alerting you to when your stipend will be paid.

When are extra duty items/ stipends getting paid?
Stipend pay varies throughout the year.  Extra duty is paid according to the regular payroll salary schedule.

If I get a lump sum, how does that affect my tax rate?
Stipends or extra duty pay is taxed at the same rate as other pay, which sometimes results in significant amounts being withheld on lump sum payments. If you’d like to change your tax withholding information you can do that in the Tax Info section of your Employee Online account.

Frontline/Professional Development/Payscale

What types of classes qualify for movement on the certified pay scale?
The classes must be related to your work and/or correlated to goals established within the Growth Plan in iObservation.

How can I get a list of pre-approved classes for salary movement?
There is no pre-approved list. It is up to the discretion of the Professional Workforce Development Team to approve college credits. If you have questions you can email Dr. Elizabeth Meitl.

Where do I send a college class to get approved for salary movement?Submit your request for approval in Frontline.

How do I send in a completed class to get it logged on my professional development transcript?
After you complete your class submit it to Frontline. Evidence of attendance is required.

What is the approval process for professional development points?
In-service professional development, occurring during contract hours, facilitated by a KCKPS USD 500 employee, will have documentation in Frontline created by the IDP rep or the person facilitating the session.

When seeking PD points for professional development occurring during non-contractual times, approval in Frontline is required. Unless the PD is facilitated by a KCKPS USD 500 employee and/or KCKPS Department.

Approval process: (ONLY needed for PD occurring outside contractual times; after school and/or in the summer.)

Step 1: Submit Professional Development Points/Hours form in Frontline.

Step 2: Approval will be granted by the PD Director if the PD correlates to goals established within the Growth Plan in iObservation.

Step 3: Submit all documentation; including evidence of attendance, certificate of completion, transcript, verification letter/email from the instructor/facilitator. (You must have proof of attendance and/or completion from a source other than yourself.)

Step 4: The PD Director will approve PD points in Frontline.

What do the purpose codes in Frontline mean?

Re-licensure – PD transcript hours

  • This box is checked in Frontline when a certified staff member is requesting PD points to be applied to their PD transcript for the purpose of their license/certification renewal.

In-service - PD during school hours

  • This box is checked in Frontline when PD points are requested for in-service professional development occurring during work hours. (i.e. Wednesday early release or District Content PD days)

Individual Professional Development for Salary Adjustment

  • This box is checked in Frontline when PD points are requested for the purpose of salary adjustment. All professional development for salary adjustment MUST be voluntary and occur during non-contractual times. Teachers may NOT receive a stipend or payment AND be awarded PD points for salary adjustment.

Compliance

  • This box is checked in Frontline when a mandatory training is viewed, whether it be district mandated or building mandated.

What’s the different between mandatory and professional development?
Per negotiated agreement, mandatory and voluntary professional development opportunities are provided for staff. If the training or committee is mandatory then KCKPS, “...shall meet within the teachers' 8-hour workday whenever possible.” If the training or committee must be scheduled after hours, immediately following the participation, teachers, “...shall be subject to compensation as provided in Article XII.” If the training or committee is voluntary, the negotiated agreement states, “non-participation on voluntary committees shall not be considered in teacher evaluations or disciplinary actions.”

In addition, voluntary participation may result in staff earning professional development (PD) points which potentially lead to monetary compensation because as they accrue, staff are able to advance on the salary schedule. For example, teachers in Class IV, holding a master’s degree, may move to Class V after they have completed 15 graduate credit hours beyond the master’s degree - OR - when they have completed at least eight graduate credit hours beyond the master’s degree AND up to 140 hours of PD points. (20 Professional Development Points, for salary adjustment, are equivalent to one graduate hour; 140 PD points, for salary adjustment, are equivalent to seven graduate hours.) Please note, the negotiated agreement also states in-service occurring during the contractual day, or in-service in which staff are paid to attend, “cannot be used for movement on the salary schedule.” Also stating, staff may not be awarded PD points, “...where the individual is earning college credit or is receiving a stipend or payment.” Therefore, staff may qualify for movement on the salary scale when they receive college credit from a regionally accredited institution and/or when they participate in voluntary professional development opportunities.

How do I use my college credits and PD points to get a salary adjustment?
We created a presentation that explains what you need to know. Find it here.

Licensure

How do I check on my licensure status?
Go to KSDE’s License Lookup page and search for yourself using the First Name and Last Name fields. If you have questions that your building leaders can’t answer, please email the Licensure Team.

How do I renew or update my license?
The instructions for what you need to do to renew or update your license are printed on the side of your current license. To find your current license go to the KSDE License Lookup  and find the “Print License” button. If your license is expired that will not be an option for you, so you will need to look up the requirements listed on this page.

When I renew or update my license, who do I send it to?

Please send all new or updated licenses to licensure@kckps.org

I am interested in becoming a teacher, but I currently don’t have a teaching license. What options do I have?

We have two alternative certification pathways in our district for people who already have an undergraduate degree, and there are other options in nearby universities.

2022 Transfers

Kansas City Kansas Public Schools certified employees interested in applying for positions within the school district for the 2022-2023 academic year may do so through the following steps for which they meet the current qualifications, endorsements, or license.

  1. Certified staff may apply for positions for the 2022-2023 school year as they become available through the Talent Ed application system located at kckps.org/careers. All applications will be subject to the qualifications set forth in the job postings and represent no guarantee for interviews or future hires.
  2. Certified staff can apply for positions until the Kansas state approved resignation date has been completed. June 3, 2022 is the official state approved date for certified staff to submit their resignation to the school district. Liquidated fees under the separation of services section of the current NEA-Kansas City, Kansas agreement, will be in effect at 12:00 a.m. on June 4, 2022.
  3. If the certified staff has not received an offer for a KCKPS job, then the employee will remain in their current position and location for the 2022-2023 school year.
