The Kansas City, Missouri School District’s (KCMSD) Board of Education will meet Wednesday, Jan. 11, at 6:30 p.m.

According to the agenda, the board will hear a presentation regarding Truman Academy, receive an overview of the preliminary budget for next school year and learn about the district’s new website.

Although six other area school districts have sued the Board of Education regarding its student transfer policy, there is no discussion of this policy or an executive meeting to discuss legal matters on the schedule. Jackson County Circuit Court Judge W. Brent Powell will hear the case tomorrow, Jan. 12.

When KCMSD lost accreditation New Years Day, students gained the right to transfer to accredited districts in Jackson and surrounding counties. However, there are differences among policies in all the districts involved concerning tuition and transportation for these students. Representatives of accredited districts suing Kansas City say they hope the court will be able to provide some guidance on these issues.

The board meeting, which is open to the public, will take place in Suite 1009; 1211 McGee St.; Kansas City, MO 64106.
