KCPS School Board Candidates

Updated: Mar 24, 2019

The entire school board is up for re-election on April 2nd.

The Waldo Tower Neighborhood Association recently hosted the candidates for KCPS school board for Sub-District 1 and Sub-District 5 since our residents reside in both.

The video can be seen below:

For the Waldo neighborhood, Sub-District 1 runs from 85th street on the south, all the way up past Gregory to the North. The eastern boundary is a mix between Main streets and Grand. Anything east of there would be in Sub-District 5. Here is an image that was shared of Sub-District 1:
