KCKPS Celebrates National Public Schools Week

Join Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools as we unite with other districts around the state, the metro and the nation to celebrate National Public Schools Week from February 22-26th.

National Public Schools Week is a designated week for administrators, teachers, specialists, teacher educators, parents and school board members to host events for their communities and reach out to lawmakers, businesses, and other community members to discuss the importance of public education.

Public schools educate nine out of 10 students. The week-long event honors the 50.8 million students, 3.2 million teachers, and hundreds of thousands of specialists, administrators and support staff working in public schools today. Here in Kansas City, Kansas, we are home to over 23,000 students who come from a very diverse background and are staffed with nearly 4,000 employees who spend every single day in the classrooms (virtually now) and behind the scenes working hard to keep students on track.

This year more than any, public schools have faced many challenges. While COVID-19 has changed how education is delivered, it has not changed the dedication of this district to make sure all of our students are ready for their future.
