Our school offers a host of services to help your student get the support they need to thrive in school and beyond. Below is a list of specific services, providers, and contact information.
As part of the enrollment process all parents provide home language survey answers to indicate if a child speaks another language or first learned another language to determine if the student needs to receive English language services and supports.
Request for Parent/Guardian Interpreter Services or Disability Accommodations
Professional language interpreter or translation services may be requested at any time for parents/guardians by contacting the Head of School. Additionally, if any parent/guardian has a disability or other limitation that would impact their ability to participate fully in their child’s educational planning process, ISKS/KSVA would be happy to discuss accommodations that may be available in order to maximize the parent/guardian’s participation. Individuals seeking to discuss accommodations for this reason may contact Cassandra Barton, Head of School at 913.592.4600, ext. 2008.

McKinney-Vento Act and Foster Care
The McKinney-Vento Act of 1987, or P.L. 100-77, ensures that each child of a homeless individual, and each homeless youth shall have equal access to the same free, appropriate public education as provided to other children and youth. Under the Act, schools are prohibited from delaying a homeless child’s entry into school due to delays in obtaining school records. Rules regarding guardianship must be waived for homeless students living with foster Learning Coaches or relatives other than their legal guardians. Insight/KSVA can offer school supplies to qualifying homeless youth. Determinations of qualifying students are made on a case-by-case basis. Learning Coaches may review the Insight/KSVA Admission of Homeless Children and Youth policy or touch base regarding their student in the foster care system by calling the school’s Family Resource Coordinator, Elicia Harrison, at 913.592.4600, ext. 3022.
