Lee's Summit R-7 School District

Business Roundtable

The Business Roundtable was founded in 2011 after it was determined that while there were many communication avenues and informal collaborations with the business community, there was a need for a more formal and regular opportunity to discuss ideas and garner feedback from this valuable stakeholder group. The group has a Steering Committee made up of members of the business community and school district leadership.  This is a team chartered by the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District superintendent.


Business Roundtable Mission Statement

The Business Roundtable mission is to foster a productive relationship and a climate of collaboration between the R-7 School District, the business community and patrons.

Business Roundtable Charters

The Business Roundtable Charter was updated for the 2019-2020 school year.
