KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Missouri School Board held a town hall meeting on Wednesday night. Parents were able to hear possible solutions to solving the school district's problems.

About 50 parents showed up for the first of a series of town hall meetings. They were all concerned about the future of the Kansas city Missouri School District. The group listened intently as the Kansas City Missouri School District Advisory Committee presented several options that could possibly turn the district around. It may help the school district avoid a future state take over.

One option is having suburban districts contract with Kansas City and run the schools. Another option is to create an oversight commission made up of three people appointed by the mayor and three state appointees.

There will be a series of town hall meetings to discuss the future of the district starting Wednesday night at the Manual Career and Technical Center on Truman Road at 6 p.m. The other meetings are scheduled for December 15,19 & 20th. All meetings start at 6 p.m.
