Northland Career Center News

Our approach for connecting to parents & stakeholders

Friday, April 26 , 2019


Every year Northland Career Center utilizes a Customer Satisfaction Survey to evaluate how effectively NCC communicates, prepares students and meets the needs of Kansas City Northland communities. Your response will make a difference by allowing us to discern the areas in which we need to improve and implement change. This survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Keeping you informed

Northland Career Center (NCC) has had a digital presence for the past several years with an attractive, user friendly website. In the past few years, NCC has added a presence on Facebook and Twitter. NCC sends out a monthly newsletter to its key stakeholders including: Parents, Advisory Boards, Post-Secondary Partners, & Sending School Partners. Newsletters are sent on the first Tuesday of each month during the school year.

NCC Graduation Changes - We Need Your Help!

NCC Parents,

You should have received a letter from NCC Director Brian Noller on January 12th, outlining date and location changes to our graduation and introducing you to the concept of Signing Day.

Signing Day is a concept that we are adding to our graduation day on Saturday, May 18th. Students who have made a decision to sign with a related career business, a post-secondary institution, or a branch of the military would be recognized at the end of ceremony.

NCC would invite individuals from these organizations to be at our graduation to support the students and then participate in a ceremonial signing at a table where students can be captured with a picture with parents and members from this organization.

We are very excited about this change and need your help encouraging your son/daughter to be proactive in planning for college or career. Students do not have to engage in this event at the end of our ceremony, but it is an opportunity to celebrate the next steps of the journey and for you to engage with the company, college, or military representative.

Please let us know if you have any questions about graduation or about the Signing Day concept.

Thank you!

Schedule Change: Please Read - Inclement Weather - Make up days

Please note that NCC follows the schedule of the Platte County School District including school closures. If the Platte County School District closes due to poor road conditions, excessive snow, or frigid temperatures, NCC will not be in session. Click here to read more.

Currently we have missed nine school days at NCC.

The last day of school for AM juniors at NCC is scheduled for Friday, May 31. This is an early release day, so May 30 is the last day at NCC for PM students.
