State Likes KCMO School District's Plan

Kansas City, Missouri – Early reviews of the Kansas City Missouri School District's plan to earn back its state accreditation are positive.

The district submitted a revised roadmap back to full accreditation to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education yesterday and the state likes where the district is headed.

Director of School Improvement Support Ginny Vandelicht contrasted the new report with the one she received in March.

"It was much more specific in terms of the data that they presented to us," Vandelicht said. "It was just a much better report."

There is not a fixed date when the state will make a final decision on the district's full accreditation and the situation moving forward is fluid, Vandelicht said.

Standardized test scores submitted during the school year will be critical measures of the plan's success.
