Board of Education to Review KC Accreditation
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) -- Missouri education officials are set to consider whether the Kansas City School District retains its provisional accreditation.
The State Board of Education was meeting Tuesday in Jefferson City and was expected to review the accreditation of Kansas City and 17 other Missouri districts.
The meeting comes a few days after the state finalized a report that showed the Kansas City district meeting three of 14 standards for performance, down from four a year ago.
If the state board removes Kansas City's accreditation, the district would have two years to improve before the state could take it over and appoint its own administrative board.
