Company / Business Name: Kalamazoo Public Schools
Kalamazoo Public Schools is a vibrant, growing district, with an increase of 2,500 students in the last 14 years and 1,300 students in the last 12 years. Using the Kalamazoo Promise as a springboard, the Kalamazoo Public Schools (KPS), its staff, parents, students, and community organizations continue to improve student achievement in a profound way.

We are KPS, the largest, most diverse district in the region, the second largest and the most diverse district on the west side of the state. We appreciate and value our diversity and view it as part of our richness. We are approximately 38 percent African American, 36 percent white, 13 percent Hispanic, 11 percent multi‐ethnic, less than 2 percent Asian American, and less than 1 percent Native American. We are 1,596 special needs students. We are 1,058 English language learners, of which 165 are refugees who have enrolled in the district in the last three years. We are hundreds of young people who have struggled with housing instability over the last year.

Thanks to the tremendous efforts of our teachers, support staff, administrators, parents, grandparents, and community, our children have greater opportunities each year to pursue their promise and their dreams. We continue to make improvements in our schools each and every year.
