Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS) leaders are celebrating. They got a 60 percent on a state evaluation. That’s 10 percentage points more than needed to get to provisional accreditation, although whether and when that gets restored is up to the state education officials.
When Superintendent Stephen Green first got the district’s numbers under a new evaluation system in December, they were dismal.
“Moments like that either they break you or they make you stronger for having persevered through the break,” said Green.
