KC School Chief Leaving
May 13, 2015

Kansas City School Superintendent Stephen Green is leaving the district, according to school officials.
Supposedly, Green told the School Board last night that he has been named the sole finalist to lead the DeKalb County, Georgia School District in George and that he intended to take the job.
The Kansas City school Board is expected to meet in private at 4;30 this afternoon. A news conference is set for 6:30 to formally announce green’s decision to leave for Georgia.
Green is in the second year of his second three-year contract with the Kansas City school district.
The deal has extensions that would have kept him on the job here until 2018.
Green apparently stressed the decision had nothing to do with his with his position here. Green has children and grandchildren in the area and the decision was motived by family concerns.
The decision is a jolt since green had been leader who had brought the troubled school district back to the brink of re-accreditation from the state of Missouri.
Green has relatedly said he expects the Kansas city test scores to be high enough on the state test to merit gaining accreditation this fall.
