Dear Kent County Families,
The District Student Handbook provides important information about Kent County Public Schools (KCPS) for you and your child. Recently, our mission statement and core values were updated to mirror what you can expect from KCPS.
Anchored in excellence, Kent County Public Schools will provide personal learning experiences within a collaborative community of learners, that inspire our students to reach their highest potential and become engaged global citizens.
These are the principles we believe and drive all our decisions.
Students First - Developing positive relationships and providing individual learning experiences within a digital environment will meet the diverse needs of our students.
Collaboration - Our success is dependent upon effective teamwork of students, staff, parents, and community members.
Commitment - Promoting a culture of excellence and accountability will demonstrate our commitment to students.
Community - Uniting our community requires respectful understanding of our diverse heritage and valuing the natural beauty and resources of our environment.
Fiscal Responsibility - Through responsible spending of the funds entrusted to us, the needs of all students will be achieved.
Trust - Trust and confidence will be acquired through integrity, competence, and transparency.
Welcome to the KCPS family.
Dr. Karen M. Couch
Superintendent of Schools
