KANSAS CITY, Mo. – On Monday the board of education for North Kansas City schools will announce how they plan to deal with overcrowding.

The plan being discussed will help ease school crowding at elementary and middle schools levels across the school district. They will also discuss renovating North Kansas City High School, which is nearly 90-years old.

The district is currently considering a $114-million no tax increase bond. Many of the details of the plan won't be announced until Monday's meeting.

School leaders say for years North Kansas City schools have struggled with a growing student population. They hope Monday's plan will best prepare them for the next generation of students.

That meeting is at 12:30 p.m., at North Kansas City High School. Voters will have the final say August 2 on the ballot.
