The State Supreme Court has made a quick decision on a case involving the Kansas City School District and Westport charter schools. It’s decided it’s not going to make a decision on the merits of the case … and will send it back to the State Court of Appeals. The argument centers around the District’s decision to cancel its working agreement with Westport. Jim Wyrsch, representing Westport, told the Supreme Court the District was wrong to sever ties, even though the District claims it had a right to sever after five years. Allan Hallquist, representing the District, says an agreement can be ended provided a warning is issued … and it was. As for what would happen to Westport’s teachers, those who are certified would be allowed to stay on while those not certified would have to apply for temporary licences. An earlier ruling by the State Court of Appeals upheld the position of the District.
