KPM knows educational institutions must hire a quality service provider to help such entities remain transparent and efficiently operate amid ever-evolving rules and regulations so they may empower lifelong learners. Our firm includes a specialized team of advisors and certified public accountants who work with K-12 schools and higher education institutions. We currently serve more than 70 school districts, charter schools, postsecondary educational institutions, and various trade and technical entities. Our team has been consulted by the finance section of the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education on various matters throughout our years of performing school audits. In addition, our higher education advisors have extensive experience with postsecondary educational institutions and the intricacies of Student Financial Aid (Title IV Funds).



Education Conferences

KPM was proud to exhibit at recent education conferences in Missouri, including those for the Missouri School Boards’ Association, Missouri Community College Association, and Association of School Administrators & Missouri School Public Relations Association! We enjoyed meeting and catching up with school district and college administrators and officials from across the state. Watch these conference interviews to hear what our clients, association officials, and KPM accountants had to say about current industry issues and conference takeaways.
