WelcOMe FROM the SuPeRINteNDeNt
Dear Kirkwood School District Residents: Thank you for making my first year in the Kirkwood School District an enjoyable and rewarding experience. The generous support of our community is evident in projects such as this School Directory, which is produced in partnership with the Webster-Kirkwood Times and our local business community. Every community member is also a key partner in educating our children. You are welcome to attend one of our many sporting or fine arts events featuring our talented students. Please contact us about our senior citizens’ “Golden Pass,” which allows you to attend most events free of charge. We also invite you to visit the schools to see the many exciting projects underway as part of the district’s master facilities plan. These projects will greatly enhance the learning opportunities we provide for students. The most visible of these improvements is the work being done at Lyons Stadium at the high school. Work to install a new track and synthetic turf in the stadium has begun with support from citizens and private donors through the Kirkwood School District Foundation. On Nov. 2, the district will ask voters to consider two bond issues that are a response to immediate needs as well as needs outlined in the district’s longrange facilities plan. Proposition 1, a no-tax rate increase proposal for approximately $33.5 million, supports key needs that include providing the capacity for students to attend kindergarten in their home attendance areas. Currently, three of the five elementary schools—Keysor, North Glendale and Robinson— do not have the classrooms needed to allow all their students to attend kindergarten in their home school. Also, Proposition 1 would provide a learning environment that supports the best in science education for our middle school students. Both North Kirkwood and Nipher middle schools have outdated science classrooms. Proposition 2, a 4.5 cent tax rate increase for approximately $14.8 million, supports the completion of improvements at Kirkwood High School, which include an aquatic center, as well as field improvements at both middle schools. At a cost of 4.5 cents per hundred dollars of assessed valuation, Propositions 1 and 2 together will provide approximately $48.3 million for renovation, construction, and improvements for the schools. I encourage you to learn more about these two bond proposals by visiting the district’s website at www.kirkwoodschools.org or calling the district’s community relations office at 314-213-6102. We look forward to the start of a new school year on Wednesday, Aug. 18. The education of our children is a top priority for our community and requires team work and strong community partnerships. Thank you! Sincerely, Tom Williams Superintendent of Schools

2010-11 Kirkwood School District Directory

In partnership with its dynamic communities, the Kirkwood School District has built a solid reputation as a district where children and their needs come first. Kirkwood schools and communities share a proud heritage and respect for tradition as well as a progressive attitude toward education for all children. District staff, parents and community members work together to provide innovative educational programs, which focus on what today’s youth must know and learn to become tomorrow’s leaders. The district, chartered in 1865, is among the oldest in St. Louis County and one of the oldest west of the Mississippi River. Located in southwest St. Louis County approximately 15 miles from the city of St. Louis, Kirkwood School District covers an area of 15 square

ABOut the DIStRIct

miles and serves all, or portions of, eight suburban communities including Des Peres, Frontenac, Glendale, Huntleigh, Kirkwood, Oakland, Town and Country, and Warson Woods. (See map on page 15) The district also welcomes eligible students from the city of St. Louis through participation in the St. Louis Voluntary Transfer Program. (See map on page 17) With sidewalks and tree-lined streets, many Kirkwood School District neighborhoods are within walking or biking distance of the district’s five elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. The Hough Community Learning Center provides additional learning opportunities for children and residents of all ages. These opportunities include the Kirkwood Early Childhood Center,

which is a licensed and fully accredited early education center serving families with children up to age 10. The programs offered include preschool, early childhood special education and Parents As Teachers. The school district also features a Community Technology Learning Center open to all district students and residents. The Kirkwood School District and its surrounding communities reflect a blend of old town charm with new suburban vitality. Residents enjoy beautiful parks and recreation facilities, thriving municipal business districts, large shopping malls, an open-air produce market, and a nationally acclaimed children’s science museum. Several parochial schools and a junior college are also located within the district’s boundaries.

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:

PROtectION OF PuPIl RIghtS AMeNDMeNt (PPRA)
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; or 7. 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 202-260-3887 (voice). Individuals who use TDD may call the Federal Information Relay Service at 800-877-8339. Or you may contact us at the following address: Family Policy Compliance Office U.S. Department of Education 400 Maryland Avenue, SW Washington, D.C. 20202-5920

gOlDeN PASS PROgRAM FOR ReSIDeNtS
The district invites residents of the Kirkwood School District, age 60 or older, to carry the KSD Golden Pass. As valued members of the KSD community, older adults are encouraged to visit the schools often and enjoy the variety of sports, theatrical and musical events performed by students. The bearer of a Golden Pass is entitled to attend most public events sponsored by the district free of charge with the exception of

the annual Turkey Day Game or any statesponsored contests. Please call the Office of Community Relations & Development, 314-213-6100, to obtain a pass.

School history: Kirkwood High School (KHS) has a long, rich history that dates back to the founding of the Kirkwood School District in 1865. High school and elementary students attended school together in a temporary building, which opened in the fall of 1866, and later in the Jefferson Avenue School, the district’s first formal school built in 1869. African-American students attended the Booker T. Washington School, which opened in 1869 on Adams near Geyer Road. In 1888, the district built the Adams Avenue School next to the Jefferson School and offered a two-year high school program for students completing the elementary grades. In 1896, Kirkwood offered the first four-year high school program in St. Louis County; 10 students were members of the first graduating class in the spring of 1897. In 1922, a new high school was built on Kirkwood Road, where Nipher Middle School stands today. The present school building on Essex Avenue was built in 1955 on a 47-acre, seven building, college-style campus. Both white and African-American students were enrolled to attend high school together for the first time. Building improvements from a 1993 tax/bond issue included the Thomas N. Keating Performance Center, a fine arts complex that features an 821-seat theater, band, art and vocal music classrooms. The privately funded Walker Commons enclosed the theater lobby area connecting the Keating Center to the main campus. Thanks to community support of Proposition I in April 2005 and the generosity of private donors through the Kirkwood School District Foundation, the Earl and Mrytle Walker Science Center opened in the fall of 2007. The design of the new science facility reflects current research and best practices in science eduPROgRAMS Freshman Opening Day: Aug. 17, 7:50 a.m. PtO Open house: Aug. 26, 7 p.m. Senior Parents’ coffee: Sept. 13, 7 p.m. Junior Parents’ coffee: Sept. 16, 7 p.m. Sophomore Parents’ coffee: Sept. 20, 7 p.m. Freshman Parents’ coffee: Sept. 23, 7 p.m.

cation. The two-story structure features 15 combined science classrooms/laboratories, five each for chemistry, biology and physics. The former science building was renovated to house the World Language Dept. Also part of Prop I, the KHS Physical Education and Sports Center opened in the fall of 2008. The Center features a new regulation-size gymnasium that was completed in April 2008. The new gymnasium is used for daily physical education classes and also serves as the high school's main gym for athletic competitions. The new gym is located in the center of campus and is connected to the school’s existing physical education facility, which was also renovated. These improvements include a new weight training/fitness center, dance studio/classroom, wrestling room and staff offices. The hallway between the new gym and existing building will feature a Hall of Fame to highlight distinguished KHS alumni. With support from citizens and private donors through the Kirkwood School District Foundation, work began this summer to install a new track and synthetic turf in the KHS Lyons Stadium. KHS is proud to be a high school dedicated to success for all students. The high school has ranked on the Missouri “Top Ten” list for student performance on state MAP tests. The new facilities at KHS have been designed to contribute to a positive and safe learning environment for students and staff. KHS welcomes the incoming class of 2014 to an exciting learning community of committed students and staff. Go Pioneers!

FAMIly eDucAtIONAl RIghtS AND PRIvAcy Act (FeRPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are “eligible students.” • Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school. Schools are not required to provide copies of records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for parents or eligible students to review the records. Schools may charge a fee for copies. • Parents or eligible students have the right to request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information. • Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student's education record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions (34 CFR § 99.31): o School officials with legitimate educational interest; o Other schools to which a student is transferring; o Specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes; o Appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a student; o Organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of the school; o Accrediting organizations; o To comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena; o Appropriate officials in cases of health and safety emergencies; and o State and local authorities, within a juvenile justice system, pursuant to specific State law. Schools may disclose, without consent, "directory" information such as a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance. However, schools must tell parents and eligible students about directory information and allow parents and eligible students a reasonable amount of time to request that the school not disclose directory information about them. Schools must notify parents and eligible students annually of their rights under FERPA. The actual means of notification (special letter, inclusion in a PTA bulletin, student handbook, or newspaper article) is left to the discretion of each school. For additional information or technical assistance, you may call 202-260-3887 (voice). Individuals who use TDD may call the Federal Information Relay Service at 800-877-8339. Or you may contact us at the following address: Family Policy Compliance Office U.S. Department of Education 400 Maryland Avenue, SW Washington, D.C. 20202-5920 The Kirkwood School District has determined that the Voluntary Interdistrict Choice Corporation (VICC) and its officers, employees and agents are school officials with legitimate educational interests because they act for and on behalf of the district with respect to transfer students and the transfer program, and because they seek to advance the interests of both. A transfer student’s attendance records and other educational records relevant to the student’s participation in the program or to the program itself may accordingly be disclosed to VICC without obtaining written consent from the parent/guardian or eligible student.

All responsible public agencies are required to locate, evaluate, and identify children with disabilities who are under the jurisdiction of the agency, regardless of the severity of the disability, including non-resident children attending private schools; highly mobile children, such as migrant and homeless children; and children who are suspected of having a disability and in need of special education even though they are advancing from grade to grade. The Special School District of St. Louis County in partnership with the Component Districts assure that a free, appropriate public education (FAPE) is provided to all eligible children with disabilities between the ages of 3 and 21 under their jurisdiction. Disabilities include autism, deaf/blindness, emotional disorders, hearing impairment and deafness, mental retardation, multiple disabilities, orthopedic impairment, other health impairments, specific learning disabilities, speech or language impairment, traumatic brain injury, visual impair-

ment/blindness and young children with developmental delays. The Special School District in partnership with the Component Districts assure that it will provide information and referral services necessary to assist the State in the implementation of early intervention services for infants and toddlers eligible for the Missouri’s First Steps Program. The Special School District in partnership with the Component Districts assure that personally identifiable information collected, used, or maintained by the districts for the purposes of identification, evaluation, placement or provision of FAPE of children with disabilities may be inspected and/or reviewed by their parents/guardians. Parents/guardians may request amendment to the educational record if the parent/guardian believes the record is inaccurate, misleading, or violates the privacy or other rights of their child. Parents have the right to file complaints with the U.S. Department of

Education or the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education concerning alleged failures by the district to meet the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The Special School District of St. Louis County has developed a local Compliance Plan for implementation of State Regulations for the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act – 2004 (IDEA-2004). This Plan and School Board Policies contain the district’s procedures regarding storage, disclosure to third parties, retention and destruction of personally identifiable information and the district’s assurances that services are provided in compliance with General Education Provision Act (GEPA). This Plan is available for public review in the Office of the Superintendent of Schools during regular school hours on days school is in session.

School history: The Nipher Middle School building was built in 1921 and officially opened in September 1922 as the community’s new high school. Before its construction, secondary students attended school with elementary-age children in one of the district’s first buildings, a four-room brick school built in 1869 at Adams and Jefferson. A few years after the high school opened on Kirkwood Road, a separate south building was built in 1929 to house Grades 7 and 8 in a junior high school. Following the tradition of naming public schools for outstanding community citizens, the Board of Education chose to name the junior high school in honor of Dr. Francis E. Nipher, who had been a distinguished educator and professor at Washington University in St. Louis. The north building housed Kirkwood High School until its move in 1954 to its present location on Essex Avenue. During reorganization in 1976, Nipher Junior High School

became Nipher Middle School to house Grades 6 through 8, with Grade 9 moving to Kirkwood High School. Renovations resulting from a 1993 tax/bond issue included construction of a two-story addition to house a new library/ media center, three computer labs, three regular classrooms, the main school and counselors’ offices as well as technology infrastructure, air conditioning, ventilation system improvements, stage renovation and interior upgrades. In 2005, the community approved Proposition I, a twopart bond initiative that provided funds for the district’s master facilities plan and improvements throughout the district. Prop I improvements at Nipher included new water/fire main, new fire alarm, exterior door replacements, exterior painting, slate roof repairs, and gym floor restoration. The Nipher building is a designated historical landmark and its recent additions continue to reflect the original design

School history:

The W. W. Keysor Elementary School first welcomed children in September 1930. The school was named for Judge William Winchester Keysor, a prominent Kirkwood citizen and president of the school board in the early 1900s. Designed by William B. Ittner, renowned school architect, the building has been expanded several times with new additions designed to blend with the school’s traditional appearance. A wing on the south end of the building was built in 1938; a matching wing on the north end was added in 1949. In 1954, an auditorium/gymnasium was built including side wings that provided eight more classrooms. An addition to the south end of the school was completed in 1987 to house the media center (library), science/

computer lab, and rooms for reading and gifted education instruction. Renovations resulting from a district tax/bond issue in 1993 included technology infrastructure, air conditioning, ADA compliance, and interior upgrades. A covered pavilion located at the north end of the playground area for outdoor classroom and learning projects was built in 1999 thanks to the generosity of the Keysor PTO, students and community. In 2005, the community approved Proposition I, a twopart bond initiative that provided funds for the district’s master facilities plan and improvements throughout the district. Prop I improvements at Keysor have included roof replacement north/south wing, exterior painting, restroom

plumbing upgrades, new domestic fire main and new fire alarm system. Keysor School is proud of its students and staff for their persistent focus on learning and achievement. Keysor ranks as a Missouri “Top Ten“ school for 2008 MAP test scores and has earned “Gold Level” recognition for school-wide Positive Behavior Support efforts. At Keysor, students and staff adhere to the Keysor Pride Expectations: We are respectful, responsible, honest and kind. The school is committed to social justice, and the fifth-grade Civil Rights Team displays positive leadership for all students in making the school community a socially just place to learn and grow and where all members are safe, valued, respected, accepted and welcomed.

School history:
North Glendale Elementary School opened in the fall of 1938. Two years later the north and south wings were added. In 1964, the south addition was constructed and the gym was rebuilt, moving the school office to its present location in the center of the building. Renovations resulting from a tax/bond issue in 1993 included technology infrastructure, air conditioning, ADA compliance, library renovation and interior upgrades in the bathrooms and halls. The school often serves as a community focus for its namesake city of Glendale. The school and city have established a strong working relationship and partnership for the purpose of combining resources to benefit instruction. In 1997, North Glendale School and city collaborated to improve the school’s playground and create a school/community park area. In addition to new playground equipment, benches and a drinking fountain, the improved area features a quarter-mile asphalt walking/running path, which is used by both students and residents. In 2005, the community approved Proposition I, a twopart bond initiative that provided funds for the district’s master facilities plan and improvements throughout the district. Prop I improvements at North Glendale included new domestic/fire lines, new fire alarm system, new roofing, tuck pointing, new exterior doors, new DA lift in gym and new plumbing. In spring 2008, the school dedicated a new outdoor learning pavilion in honor of Tom Waltz, former principal who retired in 2006. The pavilion was made possible through a grant submitted by the City of Glendale, KSD and North Glendale PTO.

North Glendale School is proud to be a school where teachers and support staff are dedicated to doing what is best for students. The school has set high academic and behavior expectations for all. In recognition of student performance on the 2008 state MAP test, North Glendale was named to the Missouri “Top Ten” list. At North Glendale, students and staff honor this school pledge daily: “As a learner at North Glendale I will be cooperative, respectful, responsible, honest and I will persevere.” Through the efforts a supportive PTO and the many parents, university practicum students, high school students and senior citizens who regularly volunteer, North Glendale has established a nurturreturning to school at ing, welcoming learning community in which children can the top of your game. learn and grow.

Robinson Elementary School was built in 1929 as a three-story brick building and officially welcomed children in the fall of 1930, the same year as Keysor Elementary. Both schools were designed by school architect William B. Ittner and are similar in their traditional style. The school was formally named the George R. Robinson Elementary School to honor a prominent community member. Mr. Robinson, a co-founder of the Ralston Danforth Commission Co., is remembered for his philanthropic contributions and for establishing youth organizations in the Kirkwood community. Robinson School has expanded through building additions in 1937, 1949, 1953 and 1987. Renovations resulting from a district bond issue in 1993 include technology infrastructure, air conditioning and interior upgrades.

as a Missouri “Top 10” school for student achievement on state 2008 MAP tests. It is one of three schools in St. Louis County recognized by Character Plus for its outstanding character education programs. Robinson earned the African-American Achievement Award for 2002 student achievement scores. Robinson was also selected as the “Do the Right Thing” school in Missouri for its “Cuddle Covers” service-learning project that provided blankets to newborns. Robinson has been the recipient of the Positive Behavior Supports Bronze award for three consecutive years. Robinson staff and families take pride in embracing students of culturally diverse backgrounds and the school’s work in “Teaching and Leading for Social Justice Advocacy,” which began in 2002.

StRAtegIc PlANNINg AND SchOOl IMPROveMeNt teAMS The success of the Kirkwood School District’s educational programs is the result of strategic planning, which involves students, administrators, teachers, support staff, parents and community members. A Strategic Planning Coordinating Committee oversees the process and develops the school district’s mission and core beliefs. While all Kirkwood schools are guided by the district’s mission, School Improvement Teams at each school develop goals and strategies for the educational programs that best fit the needs of children in their individual schools. The Teams include students, parents, staff, school board and community members who meet throughout the year. The School Improvement Teams contribute to the distinct characteristics and the innovative programs offered in each Kirkwood school. cuRRIculuM, INStRuctION AND ASSeSSMeNt Developing curriculum and instruction that best meets the needs of all children is the guiding force behind the Kirkwood School District’s exemplary educational programs. Quite simply, curriculum is what we teach children and instruction is how we teach children. Assessment is the measurement of learning. Curriculum for each discipline is developed after a review of best practice and state standards. A Curriculum Review Committee that includes administrators, teachers, students, parents and community members review proposed curriculum. Curriculum guides for all subjects include detailed information about what is being taught at each grade level as well as how students’ work will be assessed. Instructional methods are continually reviewed to ensure the best teaching techniques and research are being put to use in the classrooms. Assessments to offer students ongoing feedback are frequent and reported to parents.

Kids, Sports and Contact Lenses
My nine-year-old plays sports year round. Wearing glasses is really inconvenient. They slip, get smudged and sometimes get knocked off. At what age can a child wear contact lenses or are there other options?

Dr. Gaines and patient

For kids, ages 8 and up. involved in competitive sports, dance or theater, soft daily disposable lenses are a great solution when glasses get in the way. There is no need to clean and disinfect the contact lenses since they are worn for one day and discarded. Because the contact lenses are always new, they are very comfortable. Not only are daily disposable contact lenses easy to use, they are regarded as the safest type of contact lens available. There is no cost for contact lens solutions, so they are very affordable. Daily disposable contact lenses are a good alternative to glasses, when needed. They can increase a child’s confidence, leading to better performance on the field or on the stage. If your child is not ready for contact lenses, another popular option is prescription sports goggles. Summer is a great time to begin contact lens wear before practice begins and school resumes. We specialize in fitting children, tweens and teens for contact lenses. Call us today for a consultation.
