    As champions for students, North Kansas City Schools’ mission is to ensure that all are life-ready and ethically grounded in an ever-changing world through innovative educational experiences that:

    • Inspire Lifelong Learning
    • Embrace Inclusion
    • Forge a Unified Community 



    A strategic plan was adopted in 2017 to guide the District through the next five years and beyond. This plan was achieved through a combined effort of stakeholders including students, parents, community members and district employees all working together.

    From the strategic plan, the Board of Education establishes annual district goals and the school board's Balanced Scorecard. School planning follows to establish the relationship between the strategic plan and school plans.
