Thank you to those who completed our community telephone survey and/or online surveys relating to a potential Spring 2020 “no tax increase” bond issue. We are currently in the information gathering stage of preparing for an anticipated “no tax increase” bond issue and are working with Patron Insight to finish compiling the survey data. The first round of telephone survey topline data was presented to the Citizens’ Advisory Committee and the Board of Education this week.

The Lee’s Summit R-7 Board of Education approved boundary adjustments for the 2019-2020 school year at their December 13, 2018, meeting. We now have detailed, street level maps available on our CFMP website (elementary boundary map and secondary boundary map) that highlight the approved changes. These maps detail the new boundary grids by street and by neighborhood. In the coming weeks, we will also have our Transfinder address look-up tool available so that families can search specific addresses for 2019-2020 school year assignments.
