The Kansas City School Board has faced issues of what to do with its closed schools. Many conflicts, including budgeting conflicts, have impacted the school board. The district has already closed 15 schools, while other schools have pending sales and have been available for purchase for years.
Twenty-one buildings will be closed, with the district keeping 10 buildings. The board is facing many questions, notable who will cover costs and what the overall plan should be for the buildings.
The board is currently seeking to bring in someone to lead the process and work with the developers. The American Institute or Architects has also been brought in to assist with the issues.
