Show Me KC Schools Launches Website to Help Parents

For Immediate Release PRESS RELEASE - October 31, 2013 – Show Me KC Schools Launches Website to Help Parents

A new website that helps Kansas City parents find the right school for their children launches today. The creator of the site, Tricia Johnson, is a Kansas City mother of two preschool-aged children. The idea for Show Me KC Schools emerged after multiple conversations with other KC parents struggling to find answers to their school-related questions. “Trying to find the right school is stressful,” says Stacey Carrow, Kansas City mother of three, “I’m not sure where to begin.”

Show Me KC Schools provides an individual profile for 94 KCPS, private, parochial, and charter schools serving families living within the KCPS boundaries. Each profile includes the school’s mission statement, grades served, enrollment data, contact information, demographics, a map, test scores (where available) enrollment information and a link to the school’s website.

For more than a generation families have been leaving Kansas City having reached the conclusion that the right school option does not exist for their children. Show Me KC Schools is founded on the premise that many of these parents would have found the right school if information about existing educational options was more easily accessible. Show Me KC Schools believes that great school options are available to KC families, and that these options will only increase as more parents dedicate themselves to finding the right school, right here in the heart of Kansas City.
