Kansas City, January 29, 2018: Parents can now skip the line and go digital instead when it’s time to enroll their children in Kansas City Public Schools.
KCPS is excited to launch a 100 percent online, digital enrollment process starting at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 1 for preschool and kindergarten classes at Neighborhood Schools. Online enrollment is faster, more efficient and easier for parents and the school system.
“This move to online enrollment is another sign that KCPS is becoming the type of innovative, savvy school system that our students need in order to prepare for the 21st century global economy,” Superintendent Mark Bedell said. “Our goal is to make it as customer-friendly as possible for parents to enroll their children in our schools.”
Preschool includes pre-kindergarten and Head Start Programs. Though students in all grades will be enrolled online, this announcement is focused on preschool and kindergarten students and families who have recently moved into the school system; current KCPS students are automatically rolled-up to the next grade.
Parents should visit www.enrollkc.org to learn more about the outstanding Neighborhood School options and the online enrollment process, including proof of residency requirements. Enrollment applications cannot be submitted at schools.
In order to support parents through this new process, enrollment kiosks will be available from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at the KCPS Board of Education (BOE) building, which is located at 2901 Troost Ave. in Kansas City, Mo. Technical support will be available for enrollment at the BOE or by calling (816) 418-7888 during regular business hours. Parents who enroll at the BOE will have their children’s important documents digitally scanned and stored on thumb drives that families can keep free of charge.
