Online Forms Online Forms

This summer Independence Schools transitioned to online registration forms. We have had great success with parents creating accounts and completing necessary forms, but we are still missing many of you. A letter was mailed to each household in August with a blue sheet of paper that had directions and a unique registration number.  If you never received this letter, or misplaced it, please CLICK HERE to email Mr. Pennington for the necessary directions.

Rachel’s Challenge Kindness and Compassion Program Returns To City of Independence on October 19 Rachel’s Challenge Kindness and Compassion Program Returns To City of Independence on October 19
Rachel Joy Scott was the first person killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. Rachel was shot by two students from her school as she sat outside the cafeteria eating lunch with a friend. After her death, her father, Darrell Scott, created the Rachel’s Challenge program to share the inspiring story of his young daughter and her message of kindness and compassion. Darrell Scott, Rachel's father, will be speaking to the community of Independence on Wednesday, October 19 at 7pm in the Independence High School auditorium. He also will be spending the day with students and staff in a number of presentations and break-out sessions that will motivate and equip students and staff to embrace new values of kindness and compassion so that no one is left behind because of fear and violence in their school. The Rachel’s Challenge program provides a sustainable and evidence-based framework for positive climate and culture in our schools. It is designed to help create a safer and more productive place in which to learn and achieve.
