Superintendent Welcome Letter

April 12, 2022


Dear Hogan Families,

As we get ready to move into next year, Hogan is planning to launch a new program that personalizes the learning for
our students. We have been redesigning the educational experience for our students so we can better meet their
needs. Our redesign involves improved facilities, new grade level configurations, and adjusted school schedules so
students have access to a more individualized learning experience. That means next year there will be some new
and innovative opportunities for our students. A summary of the most significant changes at each level is listed
below.

Elementary School - (Kindergarten through 6th Grade)

  • Hogan Elementary School will have a new grade level configuration. We will move from a K-5 building to a K-6 building. Current 5th grade students will complete their 6th grade year at the elementary school building located at 2803 E. 51st Street.
  • Flexible grade level classrooms will be implemented to better personalize the educational experience for each student. Students will have access to multi-age developmentally appropriate classrooms that are designed to accelerate learning and provide support based on their unique needs.

Middle School - (7th and 8th Grade)

  • The 7th and 8th grade students will start the school year at our building at 6409 Agnes Kansas City, MO. If the construction project for the 7th and 8th grade center stays on schedule, those students will move to the new building at 1221 E. Meyer Blvd Kansas City, MO in January, 2023 (2nd semester of next school year).
  • Their new building is located right next to the new high school.
  • The 7th and 8th grade students will have a new schedule for the 22-23 school year. Their school day will start at 7:15 and end at 2:15.

High School - (9th through 12th Grade)

  • Hogan High School students (9th through 12th graders) will start next school year on August 18, 2022 in the
  • new building at 1221 E. Meyer Blvd.
  • There will be a new schedule for these students. The 9th graders will start school at 7:15 and end at 2:15.
  • The 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students will start school at 8:15 and end at 3:15

Virtual School

  • In addition to in-person learning, Hogan will offer a virtual school experience for families that choose to take advantage of this unique opportunity. This virtual program will be specifically designed to support a personalized learning experience. It will allow students and families to have a flexible schedule as well as provide support to ensure their academic success.

The future for Hogan and our students is bright. These are just a few of the positive changes about to happen in our
school community. All of them are designed and intended to give each of our students a quality personalized learning
experience. All of our students are amazing and capable of doing amazing things. We are committed to giving them
access to all the resources they need.

So be sure to get your student enrolled for next year. There is limited space available. If you have not done so,
please enroll your student right away so they can be a part of the new Hogan and we can help them reach their
greatest potential.

Sincerely,
Dr. Jayson Strickland
Superintendent
