Superintendent Mark Bedell is hosting a series of Community Conversations across the Kansas City Public Schools system. In general, these events are an opportunity for Dr. Bedell to talk about how KCPS is responding to public input gathered during his 2016-2017 Listen & Learn tour, share information about the 2018-2023 Strategic Plan and have a discussion about how students, parents and neighbors can contribute towards the school system’s long-term success.
The upcoming Community Conversations are scheduled in order to give residents of those areas a chance to talk about their specific concerns and suggestions:
- Northeast Zone – 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 13 at Northeast Middle School, 4904 Independence Ave., Kansas City, Mo. (This event will include interpreters for multiple languages and a special presentation for families that have immigrated to the U.S.)
- East Zone – 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 22 at the Kansas City Public Library North-East Branch, 6000 Wilson Ave., Kansas City, Mo. (This event will include Spanish interpreters.)
Childcare and heavy refreshments will be available at each of these events.
