Is The Board Telling Us Everything?
The school board has lied to it's citizens again. Here is what the district said:
Dr. Dennis L. Carpenter, currently Hickman Mills School District superintendent, will serve as the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District’s 2017-18 superintendent, according to a Jan. 9 announcement by the Board of Education. Board members and Dr. Carpenter are finalizing the new superintendent’s contract and expect to approve it by the Jan. 19 Board of Education meeting.
Bob White signed the contract on January 11th. Dr. Carpenter signed it on January 12th.
They also signed a three year contract after leading the public to believe that it was only going to be a one year contract.
