Kansas City District to Present Plan to Fix Infrastructure
KANSAS CITY (AP) - The Kansas City School District says its buildings need some work. The 19,000-student district scheduled a public meeting Tuesday night to discuss what it describes as its "failing infrastructure."
Chief Operating Officer Michael Rounds planned to present a report including photographs, a list of projects and a way to pay for the improvements.
The district received about $2 billion in its desegregation efforts, and much of that money went toward fixing up decrepit buildings. But some of those improvements are beginning to show their age.
