USD 368 Paola is a progressive district with rural values and 20-minute access to the Kansas City Metro area.
Construction of a new Central Services building on the Paola Schools Campus was completed in the fall of 2007. It houses Board of Education, Administration, Technology, and Maintenance. This concludes a $6.3 million bond project that also added three new classrooms and renovations at Paola Middle School, and a new athletic facility/concessions/ticket booth with additional/improved seating at the stadium. Technology improvements include Smart Board Technology in all core classrooms K-12 and IP Phones district-wide in all classrooms. USD 368 is committed to using technology as a “tool” to enhance learning and to support a dedicated professional teaching staff.
Paola Schools are an integral part of a progressive “Community” featuring an active small town square, a sufficient and growing business corridor, new housing complexes, and quick four-lane access to all of the Kansas City amenities. It is a great place to live, where people care about their children, schools, community and each other. This commitment and collaborations with our communities is evident in a preview of the district Programs and Schools. Paola also has a rich historical background.
