In addition to routine items on the agenda, such as paying bills and purchasing curriculum materials, board members will hear a report from Interim Superintendent Stephen Green. They also will receive a financial monitoring report.
One significant subject of the superintendent’s report will be a draft version of a “Road to Accreditation Action Plan.” Another subject of his report will be a draft of an “Attendance, Truancy, Dropout Plan of Action.” Also, Green will discuss district key performance indicators and the promotion of students based on first-grade reading skills.
During the governance section of their meeting, board members will hear a financial monitoring report for the first quarter of the current fiscal year. The purpose of the report is to determine whether administration is in compliance with board policy. Because the district has issues with paying accounts in a timely manner, administration receives only a “Partial Compliance” rating. To improve, administration plans to provide additional purchase order training for staff and is in the process of adopting an electronic payment program for all vendors.
The board meeting, which is open to the public, will take place in Suite 1009; 1211 McGee St.; Kansas City, MO 64106.
