Blueprint 2030: Help KCPS Set Goals for the Future

Blueprint 2030: Help KCPS Set Goals for the Future

A message from the Kansas City Public Schools:

We need your feedback as we take the next step in our Blueprint 2030 process! Blueprint 2030 is a community engagement process that will guide how Kansas City Public Schools should serve students in the future and the system-level changes we need to take to get there. 

The goal is to create a blueprint for the future that maximizes KCPS resources, improves efficiencies, and enhances the educational experience and academic outcomes for all students.

Visit for more details about this initiative.

We are now in Phase 2 of Blueprint 2030 and are focused on goal setting. Community feedback is critical to the success of our process. We will work with our community to identify goals for KCPS to achieve by 2030.

We’re asking staff members, students, parents/guardians and others to join us in providing feedback by participating in our Thoughtexchange platform. This is an opportunity for our stakeholders to offer their responses to questions about the future of our schools. We need as many people as possible to participate in order to make this a success.

Please follow the appropriate link below and provide your responses to our Thoughtexchange:

These Thoughtexchange feedback platforms will be active until April 9. These responses will be gathered to help shape the next phase of Blueprint 2030, when we will generate scenarios and strategies to reach our goals for 2030.
