LINC in the Kansas City Public Schools
LINC has partnered with Kansas City Public Schools since 1992. In a time when the district has been facing serious financial changes, LINC provides services that support children and families while allowing district staff to carry out their responsibilities of educating students.
Dr. Mark T. Bedell is the district superintendent.
For the first time in about 30 years KCPS has earned the points to become a fully accredited school system. This year's APR is the latest in a remarkable comeback for KCPS. The school system's APR results have improved by more than 75 points in just four years, and the results increased 8.5 points over 2015 totals.
Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers, visited and toured Woodland Early Learning Community School while on a stop in Kansas City. Joining Weingarten on the tour were Dr. Mark Bedell, KCPS Superintendent, and Andrea Flinders, President of the Kansas City Federation of Teachers and School-Related Personnel.
Kansas City Public Schools will host a free Summerfest Back to School Festival to give families a day of fun while also taking care of back-to-school business.
The event will be held on Saturday, Aug. 6, 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., at 2901 Troost Ave., Kansas City, Mo.
