SHOCK!!! NO PROVISIONAL ACCREDITATION FOR KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS!!!
After a great deal of hype and empty promises, today is ultimately yet another disappointment for Kansas City Public Schools.
To wit . . .
KCPS BOARD MEMBERS AND LEADERS PROMISED A RETURN TO PROVISIONAL ACCREDITATION BUT RECENT WORD FROM MISSOURI DEPT. OF ED SAYS THAT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN ANY TIME SOON!!!
In other words, amid so many steps backward . . . KCPS didn't even get a tiny bit of encouragement today.
Superintendent R. Stephen Green, Ed.D - "We are pleased to announce that our students have earned 84 APR points during the state's recent achievement measure cycle."
KCUR: Kansas City public schools showed improvement in a preview of new Missouri school district ratings, but will not regain provisional accreditation at this time.
So, this so-called progress seems to come mostly at the cost of changing the test. And KCPS parents victims of the property value blight might want to remember this broken promise among so many others as Waldo/Brookside prepares to move forward with a plan to secede from the District.
Another perspective to even things out:
"Do you understand that this district hasn't achieved at this level in 20 years since MSIP began? Also, note that KCPS out performed STL and their state appointed board."
