welcome from the superintendent


Dear Kirkwood School District Residents: Welcome to the Kirkwood School District. We are blessed to have a generous community that supports our work through 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 a true partner in the important job of educating our children. Our public schools belong to the whole community and we invite you to participate and to get involved. We take pride in knowing that every community member plays an important role in our district and we encourage you to volunteer at your neighborhood school, attend one of our many events including performances of our award winning fine arts programs or one of our many athletic events showcasing our talented students. If you are a senior citizen, please contact us about our Golden Pass, which allows you to attend most events free of charge. We are very proud of our tradition of excellence and high student achievement. This past year the Kirkwood School District was recognized by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for scoring 137.5 points out of a possible 140 on Missouris new Annual Performance Report. The district has been named a Missouri Distinction in Performance Award winner each year since 2001. Kirkwood seniors graduating in 2012 had an average ACT composite test score of 23.9 which ranks among the top six in the state of Missouri. The U.S. News and World Report 2013 Best High Schools list ranked Kirkwood High School No. 3 in the State of Missouri. We invite you to visit the schools to see the many renovation projects and additions to our buildings that have been completed as part of the districts master facilities plan. Thanks to the tremendous support of the community, the community passed Proposition 1, a $33 million no tax rate increase bond issue in 2010. The funds have been used to add kindergarten classrooms, new cafeterias and gyms, interior renovations and safety/traffic improvements to three of our five elementary buildings. Keysor, Robinson and North Glendale elementary schools have completed renovation of their old gymnasiums into new, modern media center/libraries. Keysor Elementary has recently completed, with the assistance of many community volunteers, an environmentally friendly, sustainable and fully accessible outdoor classroom/playground. New state of the art science classrooms have been added to our two middle school campuses. The new science classrooms will complement the Earl & Myrtle Walker Science Center that was constructed at Kirkwood High School in 2008. The School District will begin a K-12 iPad initiative in the Fall of 2013. Students will use iPads at school and at home as the District implements this innovative approach to maximize learning through technology. We look forward to the start of a new school year on Tuesday, August 20, 2013. The education of our children is our top priority and we invite you to join us as partners in this important task. Thank you! Sincerely, Tom Williams, Superintendent

Kirkwood School District Foundations Spring Fling


Friday, May 2 @ Greenbriar Hills Country Club

Published by the Webster-Kirkwood Times


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 districts 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, now home to Nipher Middle School. The present Kirkwood High School on Essex Avenue was built in 1955 on a 47-acre campus. Both white and African-American students were enrolled to attend high school together for the first time. The campus includes the Thomas N. Keating Performance Center, a fine arts complex that features an 821-seat theatre; band, art and vocal music classrooms; and the privately funded Walker Commons. The campus also includes the Earl and Myrtle Walker Science Center, a state-of-the-art science facility that was dedicated in 2007. In addition to taxpayer support of the 2005 bond issue to fund the new science center, private donors contributed to equipping the science classrooms through the Pioneering the Advancement of Science campaign conducted by the Kirkwood School District Foundation. A new physical education and sports center was completed in fall 2008. The center features two competitive gyms (Denver Miller Gym and the David Holley Assembly Hall), the David Damerall Fitness Center, a dance studio, health classrooms, wrestling room and staff offices. With support from citizens and private donors through the Kirkwood School District Foundation, a new track and synthetic turf were installed in KHS Lyons Stadium and ready for school and community use in October 2010. In spring 2012, the new track was dedicated as the Alvin Miller Track in honor of the 1983 KHS graduate, who is regarded as the best athlete in school history. Miller, who was named a National High School Track and Field All-American and Hertz No. 1 Performing Athlete of Missouri, continues to be a leader in the community and a mentor to student athletes. KHS welcomes the incoming Class of 2016 to an exciting learning community of committed students and staff. Go Pioneers!

School Information Address: Hough Community Learning Center 106 N. Sappington Rd. Kirkwood, MO 63122 Phone Number: 314-213-6142
School History: In August 2010, the Kirkwood School District partnered with the Webster Groves School District to provide VISTA, a new student program offered in the Hough Learning Center. VISTA serves approximately 125 high school students from Kirkwood and Webster Groves who need assistance with credit recovery or obtaining a diploma in an alternative setting. The VISTA program replaces the Collaborative School program that was previously offered through a partnership with Kirkwood, Brentwood, Clayton and Ladue school districts. VISTA provides a productive, consistent, and safe non-traditional community for high school students. Given the unique needs of our students, VISTA is relationship based programming with individual learning experiences that develop the potential of every student. Not all students attain full success at their home schools. It is the districts goal to provide all students the academic and/or social and emotional support they need in order to succeed. The VISTA staff members take pride in knowing every student on a personal level, valuing and treating each one as an individual, and placing each student at the center of all decisions. Students are accepted into VISTA by a referral process beginning at the students home school. Referrals are made for a variety of reasons that may include credit recovery, individualized instruction, alternative setting, social or emotional concerns, school to work transition or diploma completion. Students retain enrollment at their home school while attending VISTA even though they may not have courses on the home school campus. The goal of VISTA is that students will return to their home school as soon as possible.

School History: The Nipher Middle School building was built in 1921 and officially opened in September 1922 as Kirkwood High School, the communitys new high school. Before its construction, secondary students attended school with elementary-age children in one of the districts first buildings, a four-room brick school built in 1869 at Adams and Jefferson. A few years after KHS opened on Kirkwood Road, a separate south building was built in 1929 to house seventh and eighth grade students in a junior high school. Following the tradition of naming public schools for outstanding community citizens, the Board of Education chose to the 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 Ave. 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 in the front of the building to house a new library/media center, computer labs, classrooms, the main school and counselors offices as well as technology and other building improvements. In 2005, a two-part bond initiative funded infrastructure improvements at the school. In November 2010, the KSD community overwhelmingly approved Proposition 1, a $33.5 million bond issue to support the districts master facilities plan. Prop 1 renovations at Nipher included the construction of a three-story addition to house six state-of-the-art science classrooms. The new science facility opened for students in the 2012-13 school year. In the summer of 2013, front entrance renovations occurred to improve building

School History: North Kirkwood Middle School (NKMS) was built in 1957 as a junior high school for students in Grades 7, 8 and 9. In 1976, the district began a reorganization of school grade levels and the junior high school became a middle school for Grades 6 through 8 with Grade 9 students moving to Kirkwood High School. As a result of a tax/bond issue in 1993, a building addition connecting the east and west buildings was completed in 1995 to house the new library/media center, seven classrooms and three computer labs. In 2005, a two-part bond initiative funded infrastructure improvement at NKMS. In November 2010, the KSD community overwhelmingly approved Proposition 1, a $33.5 million bond issue to support the districts master facilities plan. Prop 1 improvements at NKMS included construction of a new addition on the west side of the school to house six state-of-the-art science classrooms. The new science wing opened to students in January 2012. Additional renovations included a new entry to the school from the Ruth parking lot, a new security system and the relocation of the assistant principals office. NKMS is proud of its students and dedicated staff who, with incredible parent and community involvement and support, have created an exceptional learning community. Our school is nationally recognized as a Blue Ribbon School and a Missouri Gold Star School. NKMS has also been named a Champions for Character award winner for incorporating service learning throughout our school. Most recently, the Missouri School-Wide Positive Behavior Support (SW-PBS) program recognized NKMS as a Bronze Level Award winner. This award was earned as a result of the many positive behaviors and excellent character demonstrated by our outstanding students.

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 renowned school architect William B. Ittner, the building has been expanded several times through additions in 1938, 1949, 1954, 1987 and, most recently, 2012. Renovation resulting from a tax/bond issue in 1993 included technology and building infrastructure improvements. In 2005, a two-part bond initiative funded infrastructure improvements at Keysor.

districts master facilities plan. Prop 1 funded improvements to Keysor that included construction of a three-story addition of approximately 30,000 sq. ft. to house classrooms and a gymnasium, renovation of 15,000 sq. ft. of the existing building, and site safety and traffic flow improvements. Work was completed in the fall of 2012, allowing Keysor to welcome all of its kindergarten students and families to their home school. On May 28, 2013, Keysor officially dedicated their Project IDEA landscape for learning, a new outdoor learning and play space on roughly 1.5 acres on the west side of campus. Project IDEA, which stands for Imagination, Discovery, Exploration and Adventure, is an inclusive space with various play structures plus a walking path, garden lab, soccer field, stage area, and other features that support creative learning and a respect for the environment. Designed with students and community members in

mind, the project was funded with support of the Keysor PTO, private donors, and community foundations and grants. Keysor is proud of its students and staff for their consistent focus on learning and achievement. It was named a Missouri Gold Star School by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in 2011 and 2013 and has earned Gold Level recognition for efforts with school-wide Positive Behavior Support. Students and staff adhere to Keysor Pride expectations being respectful, responsible, honest and kind. Through various efforts, Keysor is intentionally working to develop in students a sense of connectedness to nature and a responsibility to contribute in positive ways to our community and a global society. In partnership with families, Keysor works each day to develop children who are good students and good people.

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 and building infrastructure improvements. In 2005, a two-part bond initiative funded infrastructure improvements at North Glendale. In spring 2008, the school dedicated a new outdoor learning pavilion in honor of Tom Waltz, former principal who retired in 2006.

In November 2010, the KSD community overwhelmingly approved Proposition 1, a $33.5 million bond issue to support the districts master facilities plan.

School History:

Prop 1 is funding improvements to North Glendale that include the construction of a 30,000 sq. ft. three-story addition consisting of classrooms, a gymnasium and a cafeteria as well as site safety and traffic flow improvements. The cost of the North Glendale improvements is approximately $6.3 million. Work on the project began in June 2010 and was completed in the fall of 2012. North Glendale welcomed all its kindergarten students to their home school in August 2012. In 2013, a new library was created in the old gymnasium area, and the former library was converted into approximately 2300 square foot of additional classroom space. The school often serves as a community focus for its namesake city of Glendale. The school and the city have established a strong partnership for the purpose of combining resources to benefit children and instruction. In

2010, the Kirkwood School District, North Glendale PTO, and the city of Glendale collaborated to build a new school playground and to create a school/community park area. 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. 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 of a supportive PTO and the many parents, university practicum students, high school students and senior citizens who regular volunteer, North Glendale has established a nurturing, welcoming learning community in which all children can learn and grow.

Selling in the community I love since 1990. Helping Kirkwood families make the right move and personally seeing you thru to closing is what I do best.

I live here, I work here, I sell here.

Robinson Elementary School was built in 1929 as a three-story brick building and officially welcomed children in the fall of 1930. 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.

FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT (FERPA)


Annual Notification/Student Records
The protection of student rights has always been a top priority of the Kirkwood School District. This document is distributed annually to all parents and students in order to comply with state and federal requirements to notify the parents/guardians and eligible students of their rights with respect to the students educational records. In general, a students educational record includes any information maintained by the school district, which contains information directly related to a student. A major exception would be a personal record kept by a staff member if it is kept in the sole possession of the maker of the record and is not accessible or revealed to any other person except a temporary substitute for the maker of the record. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords parents and students over 18 years of age certain rights with respect to the students education records. These rights are: 1. The right to inspect and review the students education records. Parents or eligible students should submit to the school principal a written request that identifies, as precisely as possible, the record(s) they wish to inspect. The school official will make arrangements for access and notify the parent or eligible student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. 2. The right to request the amendment of the students education records that the parent or eligible student believes are inaccurate or misleading. Parents or eligible students may ask the school to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading or in violation of the students privacy. They should write the principal or appropriate official, clearly identify the part of the record they want to change and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record as requested by the parent or eligible student, the school will notify the parent or eligible student of the decision and advise them of their right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. 3. The right to consent to disclosure of personally identifiable information contained in the students education records except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One exception, which permits disclosure without consent, is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the school as an administrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member; a person serving on the School Board; a person or company with whom the school has contracted to perform a special task; or a parent or student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility. Upon request, the school discloses education records without consent to officials of another student district in which a student seeks or intends to enroll. 4. The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the school with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is the Family Policy Compliance Office U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW, Washington, DC 20202-4605. 5. Directory Information may be released by school officials. This includes print and electronic publications of the school district that, if disclosed, would not be considered as determined by the Kirkwood School District as harmful or an invasion of privacy. This information may be released without prior written consent to parent and student organizations for marketing purposes; such as for buzz books produced in the fall, and to outside organizations including, but not limited to, companies that manufacture class rings or publish yearbooks in the spring. In addition two federal laws require local educational agencies (LEAs) receiving assistance under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) to provide military recruiters, upon request, with three directory information categories names addresses and telephone listings unless parents have advised the LEA that they do not want their students information disclosed without their prior written consent. Such information is also considered a public record which must be released upon demand to any person who requests it, under the Missouri Sunshine Law. If a parent, guardian, person acting as a students parent in absence of a parent or guardian, or the student (if 18 or older), does not want the district to release the information listed below, they must notify the district in writing within 10 days of receiving this notification of the information they do not want released. The following Directory Information may be released without obtaining parental consent: Students name, parents name, address, telephone number, electronic mail address, date and place of birth, grade level, major field of study, enrollment status, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, photographs, weight and height of members of the athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees, honors, awards received, most recent previous school attended. The 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 interest of both. A transfer students attendance records and other educational records relevant to the students 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. The Executive Director of Student Services has district-wide responsibility for student educational records and, as such, is the custodian of the records. Anyone having questions regarding school policy relating to student records is welcome to contact the Executive Director of Student Services at: Address: 11289 Manchester Road Kirkwood, MO 63122 Phone: 314-213-6105 Email: shirleas.washington@kirkwoodschools.org

Kirkwoods 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 Special Programs Website and in the Parent Handbook and Buzz Book each year.
