KCPS makes it case to regain accreditation

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City Public Schools have a lot riding on a meeting on Tuesday.

The district will make its case to state leaders in Jefferson City to gain provisional accreditation.

Time is ticking for the district because current students could leave the unaccredited district in the spring of next year.

The state Board of Education could make a decision on "provisional accreditation" as early as next month.

Superintendent Dr. Green and his team have been preparing.

He tells me his goal is to give the board a sense of a new Kansas City public school system since in the last year test scores have now jumped to the level needed for provisional accreditation.

"To break from the past and let those listening know that the school district is in the period of a renaissance over the last two years we've demonstrated growth, significant growth, dramatic growth in student achievement," Green said.

Green will have 30 minutes for his presentation.
