KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Less than two months before schools in the Kansas City area normally open, officials are meeting to map out how students might return to the classroom.

  • Joe Phillips, Director of Technology, Kansas City Public Schools
  • Mallory McGowin, Spokesperson, Missouri Department of Secondary Education
  • Kent Reed, KS School Counseling Program Consultant
  • Janet Waugh, Vice Chair, KS State Board of Education (represents District 1 - all of Leavenworth County, parts of Wyandotte County and parts of Johnson County)

Tune in tonight at 6:30 p.m. on 41 Action News and as we continue our education discussion with area superintendents.
