JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Missouri Board of Education voted Tuesday to revoke the accreditation of the Kansas City School District, effective Jan. 1, because it failed to reach state performance

It’s the second time in 11 years that the district has lost accreditation, an embarrassing blow to a beleaguered district that again is trying to find a superintendent.

Kansas City, Mo., schools are losing their accreditation on Jan. 1. Missouri law allows students from unaccredited districts to enroll for free in nearby school systems, so the suburban districts outside Kansas City are bracing for an influx of students.

Good morning...I find the last paragraph in the story you posted in your comment (#3) amazing. Who pays for all the new teachers and facilities, etc, needed, when a neighboring district gets inunadated? Locals? Is the budget of the failing district cut?

Man it just goes round and round in that town. I grew up in KC. Attended school in the mid 60s when the busing started up. Never forget the first time our football team had an away game in a black area.
Couldn’t even finish the first half before their team rushed our sideline. Their coaches and parents -the few that attended- managed to get them to back off before a riot started, but that game was over.

What the article fails to mention is that when the KCMOPSD lost their accreditation 11 years ago, they never managed to regain accreditation. They had been "provisionally accredited."
