SY21 School Administrator Assignments 


The KCPS School Leadership team has finalized school administrators assignments for the 2020-2021 academic year. Our students and staff will be benefiting from a deep pool of experience and skills as nearly all of our principals are maintaining their assignments. George Melcher Elementary and Primitivo Garcia Elementary are the only two schools with new principals this year. We only have one vacancy, a KC-PLUS Resident post at Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School. We welcome our new principals, vice principals and KC-PLUS residents, a number of whom were developed within our own classrooms! This is going to be a great year in KCPS!
