The Kannapolis City Board of Education has approved a new
five-year strategic plan for Kannapolis City Schools. The plan includes updated vision and mission statements and a set of focus areas for the next five years.

VISION: Kannapolis City Schools will inspire our learners to graduate and become successful citizens.


MISSION: To Teach! To Learn! To Graduate! To Inspire!



  • Literacy Skills
  • STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics)
  • Career and College Readiness


“We are very excited about this new strategic plan,” said KCS Superintendent, Dr. Pam Cain.  “Our staff, parents, and community worked with us to develop this plan, and we think it sets the right course for Kannapolis City Schools for the next five years.”


The district began developing the new strategic plan in September of 2014. KCS compiled a strategic planning committee that included staff, parents, business leaders, elected officials, and community members. The committee reviewed test scores and other data from Kannapolis City Schools and analyzed results from a survey that was open to all staff, students, parents, and community members. Based on the information that was reviewed and work that was done by the committee, members developed a strategic plan that sets the direction of the district for the next five years. It concentrates on student achievement and focuses on the belief that the core business of any successful educational institution is teaching and learning.


Besides district goals that are tied to the vision, mission, and focus areas, the plan includes a scorecard. The scorecard will be used to monitor progress toward meeting the strategic plan’s goals over the next five years. With the new plan in place, all KCS schools will develop their continuous improvement plans to align with the vision, mission, and goals of the new strategic plan.
