District Awarded Grant from Clay County Children's Fund

Once again, North Kansas City Schools is excited to announce that the district has received a generous grant from the Children’s Services Fund Board. The money is generated from a sales tax that was passed by Clay County voters in November 2017 and will be spent as outlined in MO State Statute 210.861. These earmarked funds will allow for the continuation and expansion of mental health services as well as preventative services provided by community partners such as Synergy and Tri-County Mental Health. NKC Schools is thrilled that students will benefit from increased access to therapists, case managers, prevention services and other related services, and that they can be served where they go to school. This benevolent grant will provide critical resources through 2022.
