A citizen watchdog group, Do the Right Thing for Kids, has released its report assessing the performance of the Kansas City, Missouri School Board’s performance during its Wednesday, Nov. 2, meeting.

The citizens’ summary of the board’s performance?:

“Eight Board Watchers attended the November 2, 2011 school board meeting which was an informational meeting in which staff or other resource persons make presentations to the Board about topics of interest and relevance. The Human Resources staff made an extensive presentation to the Board about policies and procedures that are being developed for teacher hiring and performance evaluation. The plans are ambitious, but they seem like the plans of an effective, stable, medium sized district. We wonder if they are realistic for a shrinking, failing district. What the immediate priorities should be for turning the district around were not discussed.”
