What is a K+ Partner in Education?

K+ is a partnership program where businesses and schools work together to prepare students for the future. Our K+ Program is flexible by design to match the needs and interests of the business with those of the school.

Junior Achievement, an elementary banking program and internships are a few examples of ways local businesses partner with Kearney Public Schools. Businesses may select a specific school or educational program to adopt.
