As we return to our schools and classrooms following the Florida school shooting, we want to be sure our students and staff have the necessary support. Their safety is a top priority and we have a consistent system in place to ensure each staff member is prepared to handle crisis situations and provide students with support. Our staff members are trained in our emergency procedures and students participate in emergency drills at least five times throughout the school year.

Budget Allocation for 2017-2018 (Click here)
Monday, April 03, 2017 7:40 AM

Kenny School has received its budget allocation for the 2017-2018 school year.  Due to overspending by the district for several years, schools are receiving a 2.5% budget decrease as Superintendent Graff works to get the district back on track.  Pushing all of our current programming forward using the 17-18 costs, our school is short $105,211 and will lose our half time Math Specialist.  We will work to be extremely creative in planning for next year.  Please see the link if you are interested in seeing the numbers: 2017-18 Budget Packet
