NKC Schools students use a variety of technology tools to support learning across all grades. All parents and guardians are encouraged to create a Parent Observer account on Canvas, our online learning management system. A parent observer account allows you to view your child's progress, assignments and other information.
Enrollment, along with grade, schedule, bus and other general information may be accessed through the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
Students in grades K-12 are issued a district device. We encourage all families to consider device insurance to minimize risk. Insurance may be purchased on MyPaymentsPlus until September 16; a device inspection is required prior to purchasing insurance after this date.
Food & Nutrition Services
The federal waiver and funding that allowed us to provide free meals for all students ended in May of 2022. Unfortunately, NKC Schools is no longer able to offer free meals for all. If you believe that you might qualify for free or reduced meals, fill out an application online as soon as possible. More information is available here.
Families are strongly encouraged to apply for the free/reduced price meals program. This ensures discounts on a variety of other programs, including testing, activity fees and more! Apply online here.
