Welcome to the 2020-21 School Year
It is with great anticipation that Kalamazoo Public Schools will start the 2020-21 school year on August 31, 2020. Being mindful of the current situation with COVID-19, KPS will be utilizing a tiered process for integrating students back into the classroom for traditional instruction through the school year. Families also have the option to remain fully virtual for the full school year. Both the tiered option and two virtual options include continued eligibility for The Kalamazoo Promise scholarship. Current data and recommendations from qualified public health officials will dictate if the tiered plan moves to tiers 2 and 3 during the school year. Adjustments will be made and communicated as they occur.Below you will find a summary of our Smart and Safe Start Plan for the 2020-21 school year, along with a DRAFT verison of the Kalamazoo Public Schools Preparedness and Response Plan. The KPS Preparedness and Response Plan is pending approval from the Board of Education.
