Kansas City Public Schools Selects Innovative Mentoring to Power their Ambitious “Success Mentors” Program Goals

Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS) has their sights set on enrolling 350-400 students across 12 schools in the first year of their newly launched Success Mentors program in newly formed partnership with Innovative Mentoring Software. This ambitious effort is a direct response to chronic student absenteeism and what Kansas City radio station KCUR calls a “mentoring gap” that leaves 2 out of 3 students without a positive adult role model in an already socio-economically disadvantaged community.
