We Must Act To Protect The Growing Achievement Of Our Scholars From Disruption & Instability
The Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS) exists to ensure that all scholars are high achieving critical thinkers capable of succeeding in an ever changing world and of contributing to their communities. The role of the KCPS Board of Directors is to secure and protect these promises on behalf of our scholars, their families and their communities.
For the past 24 months, due to the stability KCPS has enjoyed, our scholars have experienced a surge in achievement the likes of which our community has not known in many years. The decision of the Supreme Court, when added to the decision of the State Board of Education not to confer the provisional accreditation our scholars earned, will create irreparable harm to the ongoing growth of their achievement. These circumstances, combined with the overwhelming outpouring of concern from KCPS parents, elected officials and community leaders, compel the Board to take actions protecting our scholar's growing achievement from harm.
The Board expects that Superintendent Green will continue to remain focused on growing the educational achievement of our scholars. But at the same time, the Board has directed our legal counsel to pursue appropriate legal remedies that will protect the academic well-being of our scholars from certain chaos and disruption.
The Board remains committed to partnering with our scholars, their families, their communities and our staff to continue the academic growth they have earned over the past 24 months. And the Board remains open to finding a non-litigious remedy to the peril in which these circumstances place the achievement of our scholars.
