KFCS continues to work alongside and support our local and state leaders in this fight. These closures are in full support of the Governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” recommendations and follow the Governor’s Executive Orders dated March 17, 2020.

Next week staff will return to their work places and students will begin to receive learning materials, lunches, and phone calls from schools. The district will be finalizing the processes for loaning Chromebooks to families, distributing learning packets and handing out lunches by the end of this week.  The superintendent will contact families with that information by Friday, March 27, 2020.

  • Each department will meet to discuss and identify their key processes.
  • The processes most critical to department success will be determined and flow charted.
  • Flow charts will be sent to their supervisor for approval before submitting to the superintendent.

Goal #2: Improve Customer Satisfaction—By May 2019, a customer service survey will be sent to all staff and the results will be used to create PDSA plans for the next school year.

  • Each department will create a short customer service survey.
  • In spring, the surveys will be administered to appropriate staff members.
