KC Mayor Sly James wants to take over school district
Advertisements [?]
Kansas City Mayor Sly James said Thursday that he wants to take full control of the Kansas City School District.

James said he based his recommendation on a discussion with community leaders concerned about the districts pending loss of accreditation.
