District Merger

On August 1, 2020 the Kaw District merged with the Shawnee Trails District to better serve the youth in the Leavenworth and Wyandotte counties, and the Shawnee Mission School District. The merger of these two districts have formed the new Kaw District. District leadership is currently working together to ensure that commitments for both districts like school night, training, and other activities are held as planned. To learn more about the merger please visit here. Your district leadership has grown and looks forward to serving you during this time. Please do not hesitate to reach out to anyone on the District Leadership contact list for questions or concerns.
