The Kirkwood School District Foundation is a public, not-for-profit organization

WELCOME!
established in 1989 for the purpose of encouraging and financially supporting the best
educational opportunities for all students and staff in the Kirkwood School District.
While operating independently of the school board and administration, the
foundation works closely with both to support academic programs, staff enrichment,
special projects, scholarships and other needs that cannot be met through traditional
public funding sources. The Foundation fulfills its mission through private and corpo-
rate tax-deductible donations. All funds raised by the Foundation are used to benefit
students and teachers.
For more information about the Foundation and to find out how you can help,

Joseph S. Grimaud, D.D.S
please call (314) 213-6123 or email: ksdf@kirkwoodschools.org. Foundation

SUPERINTENDENT
Dear Kirkwood School District Community
Members:

We are grateful to our generous
community for supporting our work through
projects such as this school directory,

provided a helpful tool for this school year.
Whether it is the Greentree Festival, Turkey Day or a
Kirkwood School District event, our students and our
community grow when we work, learn and play together.
Our local schools are a great source of pride, and we invite
you to participate and get involved.
SPECIALIZED CARE

We are very proud of our tradition of excellence. Our
schools continually rank among the top 10 on academic
performance standards, and third-party organizations

Because of your strong support, we continue to maintain
a quality-learning environment for our students.
A special thank you to our community for the passage
of Prop K in April 2017. We hired additional teachers and
class support positions to address class size concerns. We

PROTECTION OF PUPIL RIGHTS AMENDMENT
(PPRA)
The Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA) (20 U.S.C. §
1232h; 34 CFR Part 98) applies to programs that receive funding from
the U.S. Department of Education (ED). PPRA is intended to protect
the rights of parents and students in two ways:
• It seeks to ensure that schools and contractors make instructional
materials available for inspection by parents if those materials will
be used in connection with an ED-funded survey, analysis, or
evaluation in which their children participate; and
• It seeks to ensure that schools and contractors obtain written
parental consent before minor students are required to participate
in any ED-funded survey, analysis, or evaluation that reveals
information concerning:
1. Political affiliations;
2. Mental and psychological problems potentially embarrassing to
the student and his/her family;
3. Sex behavior and attitudes;
4. Illegal, anti-social, self-incriminating and demeaning behavior;
5. Critical appraisals of other individuals with whom respondents
have close family relationships;
6. Legally recognized privileged or analogous relationships, such as
those of lawyers, physicians, and ministers;
7. Religious practices, affiliations, or beliefs of the student or
student’s parent; or,
8. Income (other than that required by law to determine eligibility for
participation in a program or for receiving financial assistance
under such program).
Parents or students who believe their rights under PPRA may have
been violated may file a complaint with ED by writing the Family
Policy Compliance Office. Complaints must contain specific allegations
of fact giving reasonable cause to believe that a violation of PPRA
occurred.
For additional information or technical assistance, you may call
1-800-872-5327 (voice). Individuals who use TDD may call the
Federal Information Relay Service at 1-800-877-8339. Or you may

SPECIAL EDUCATION PARENT ADVISORY
COUNCIL
The Kirkwood Special Education Parent Advisory Council (PAC)
was developed to provide professional and supportive connections
among parents and school staff who share an interest in promoting
the education of children with disabilities. Each school has several
parents who represent their school on the district-level PAC. These
parents also work with their schools to support families of students
with special needs. Kirkwood’s district-level PAC meets several times
each year to share information and seek input from parents on
district planning for special education and related supports for
students. These meetings are open to everyone and are listed on the
Kirkwood Special Education Facebook page, Special Programs
Website and in the Parent Handbook and Buzz Book each year.

as well as the ability to add up to three teachers per year if enrollment increases.** $3.3M
• Add up to 18 teachers and class support positions to improve class sizes and meet students’ needs. $1.2M
