The Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS) is encouraging families to immediately register their students for the 2013-2014 school year and avoid the potentially long lines that could await them closer to the first day of school.

All KCPS students are required to register before school starts on Monday, Aug. 12. By registering early, families will avoid the potential last minute rush to complete the process.

“When school begins, the minds of students and families should be clear to focus on becoming college, career and workforce ready,” KCPS Superintendent Dr. Stephen Green said. “By completing the registration process today, families will have one less distraction to success.”

Families may register by visiting the KCPS Admissions Office between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The office is located at 1211 McGee Street, Kansas City, Mo. Families must bring the student’s birth certificate, a copy of a lease or mortgage, and a copy of a utility bill. For more information, please call KCPS Admissions at (816) 418-7505.
