Kansas City Public Schools will soon unveil a new website to further open the lines of communication and gather family and community feedback.

Powered by MindMixer and the ideas of engaged citizens, the new website – www.kcpsforum.org – will launch April 1 and will allow anyone to directly ask questions, share ideas, and collaborate with neighbors on developing solutions and fresh ideas for supporting student achievement. Contributors will also be able to comment and expand upon suggested ideas and topics.

The first topics for discussion will be the project to re-open Hale Cook school and the development of a shared vision for a future KCPS middle school. KCPS Superintendent Dr. Stephen Green and other school officials will use the forum feedback to make an informed decision about the community’s needs.

This website will supplement the district’s www.kcpublicschools.org its growing social media platforms,Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Google+.

“KCPS is determined to find new, fresh, and innovative ways to collaborate with its families,” said Eileen Houston-Stewart, KCPS chief communications and community engagement officer. “KCPS Forum will present our community with the best possible tool for instant, meaningful collaboration.”
