Vote NO on Amendment #3

Editorial 

Amendment #3 would take control away from locally elected school district and apply a flawed formula for teacher evaluation and retention. Any formula that relies solely on student test scores and does not take into account what the students abilities were when they started the class is unfair.   Teachers working with students who are far behind in grade level performance would suffer. Districts with an influx of below average students from neighboring districts would suffer. 

Individual progress is a better indicator of teaching skill, rather than group test results.  

No on #2 : Allows evidence from instances where the individual was found innocent to be introduced

No on #6: Does not actually increase voter access and leaves early voting subject to the legislatures willingness to fund it.

No on #10: It is a power grab by the legislature away from the Governor. 

Raytown Charter Commission meeting #14

The subject of this meeting was a revisit of the issues of the last meeting… recall, referendum, and initiative.  The required numbers of signatures was lowered by lowering the percentage of registered voters required for placement on the ballot. Recall was lowered from 30% of registered voters to 17.5%. Referendum and initiative were both lowered to 8%.

Raytown South Football Stadium Ground-Breaking

The speeches were short and the mood was joyous at Raytown South High for the official Ground-Breaking for the new football stadium. The future promises new bleachers for the home crowd on the West side, the relocation of the old bleachers for the visitors on the East side and restrooms a plenty.  The short video starts with the speeches, then pictures of the multitude of officials and students posing with the obligatory gold shovels. The Raytown South High School Drum Line finishes the ceremony off with some spirited percussion.
