26 Schools Will Close

Title26 Schools Will Close
AbstractOn March 10, 2010, the Kansas City school board voted 5-4 to close 26 schools as recommended by new superintendent John Covington in his "Right Sizing Plan." The closings will reduce the number of school buildings by 40 percent and cut $50 million in expenses from the school district's budget. The 33 remaining schools will be the fewest the district has operated since 1889. A few of the notable school closings include Westport High School, Lincoln College Prep middle school, and Franklin, Longan, McCoy, Woodland, and Carver elementary schools.
