Welcome to the 2022-23 school year!


We are excited to welcome students back to in-person learning! This past year we realized the vital role relationships play in the lives of our children. In-person learning creates synergy as students engage with each other and their teachers.  
Health and Wellness: The safety of our students, staff, and community remains our top priority. No one fights a pandemic alone; we must stand together as community remains our top priority. 
Commitment to continuous Learning and Being Date-Driven: We want students to be actively engaged in learning and achievement. In addition, we must model this as an organization, through institutional learning and data gathering that ensures we are living out best practices in all that we do. 
Excellence and Equity: Kentwood Public Schools is committed to excellence and equity in all that we do. From our bond construction to how we use taxpayer dollars to how we treat every child in the district, excellence and equity are "lived values" at KPS. 
Together we can change the world through providing relevant and meaning opportunities for our students. 
-Kevin Poston
KPS Superintendent
