If you would like to be notified of this meeting date/time and are not currently receiving notices from, please contact Nicole Collier White at or (816) 418-7725.

KCPS Board of Directors hosted a town hall meeting on Thursday, September 5, 2013 at the Southwest Early College Campus to discuss recent developments and next steps for the Bingham school site. After much consideration, the Board decided not to move forward with selling the site to Walmart. Instead, the building will be considered for demolition in fiscal year 2015. KCPS will be evaluating future options for the site (retain vs sell) during its master planning process.
