The Kansas Partnership for Educating Kids in Care (KPEKC) is a state-level, multi-agency initiative established with funding from the Administration for Children and Families within the US Department of Health and Human Services. KPEKC was created to increase educational stability for children and youth in foster care by building a sustainable collaboration between the child welfare and education systems. By strengthening interagency collaboration, data sharing, and policies, partner agencies will be better equipped to drive change and improve educational well-being for at-risk children and youth in foster care.

Our Mission: 

  • Improving the educational well-being of Kansas children and youth in foster care through system change.
