Raytown C-2 School District is preparing to begin school PK-12 on September 8, 2020.
Based on recommendations from local health authorities, the Board of Education (BOE) voted unanimously to move the first day of school PK-12 to Tuesday, September 8, 2020. Upon this start date and for the first two weeks, all grade levels will be Virtual Learning only (no exceptions). We will be all virtual at least until September 22 at which time a yet to be adopted decision plan will guide us in when students will return to school based on local COVID-19 infection rates. The BOE will address this decision making criteria at the August 10 BOE meeting.
During enrollment, families will still have the opportunity to choose between In-Person School and Virtual Learning. We are asking parents and guardians to make a commitment to one of the two choices for each of their students during the enrollment process. As the District continues to plan for the upcoming school year, we ask that families have their enrollment completed for their student(s) by August 7.
- Families who select virtual learning will remain virtual for a full semester.
- We recognized that changes to the start date and reopening plans affect which learning option would be best for our families.
- There will be an opportunity for families to change their selection should they wish to do so prior to the start of the school year. More information about how to make this change will be shared after the August 10 BOE Meeting. There will be a very limited window to make this change.

Raytown School District follows a centralized enrollment process, which is an individualized process for each family. All students must live within the school district boundaries, submit the required documents to the Residency and Enrollment Office and submit an online registration to complete the enrollment process.
As you further consider your options for the fall, we encourage you to read through the District’s draft reopening plan for the 2020-2021 school year and provide constructive feedback, questions, and concerns. Stakeholder feedback is a vital part of this process and the District greatly encourages and appreciates your participation. We will be collecting your feedback through August 7, and will be releasing a more finalized plan that integrates your feedback in the coming weeks.
