Established in 1992, the Raytown Educational Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing grants, scholarships, programs and recognition to students and staff in Raytown Quality Schools. The foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of patrons, educators, parents, business and community leaders. The Board of Trustees volunteer their time, talents and resources to serve Raytown Quality Schools.
The Raytown Educational Foundation’s mission is to support unique programs that enhance the tradition of excellence in Raytown Quality Schools.
Raytown Quality Schools’ students will have opportunities and experiences that prepare them to be contributing members of the community.
Kansas City’s mask mandate expired on Jan. 1, 2022. Masking is now encouraged but optional for all students and staff. Masks are still federally mandated to be worn on public transportation; therefore, we will continue to require masks on all district transportation including school buses.
Southwood Elementary Principal Dr. April Sutherland was recently selected as the Kansas City Suburban Region Exemplary New Principal by the Kansas City Elementary Principals Association (KCEPA).
The Raytown School District was awarded the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) Meritorious Budget Award (MBA) for the 2021–2022 budget year.
