The Kansas City, MO School Board has a new for­mat for its two month­ly board meet­ings: The sec­ond Wednesday of each month will be a work­shop, and a busi­ness meet­ing will be held on the fourth Wednesday.  Look for our Report Cards fol­low­ing each busi­ness meet­ing.

District staff ini­ti­at­ed this for­mat on July 13 by pre­sent­ing details of the Transformation Phase II.  Members of the admin­is­tra­tion report­ed on Student Centered Learning, Parent University, the Pioneer per­for­mance-based com­pen­sa­tion sys­tem for teach­ers, tech­nol­o­gy, the LITE Academy designed to train effec­tive prin­ci­pals and lead­ers, Future Teachers of Kansas City, and com­mu­ni­ca­tion includ­ing “Coffee with Covington — a com­mu­ni­ty con­ver­sa­tion”.

The qual­i­ty of infor­ma­tion and the pro­fes­sion­al­ism of the admin­is­tra­tive team earned this meet­ing an “A” by DTRTFK Board Watchers and is a good step toward build­ing com­mu­ni­ty trust and sup­port for the school dis­trict.

View the agenda/minutes of this meet­ing (will open in a new win­dow).
