  • It is with bittersweet emotions that we announce Dr. Dennis L. Carpenter has been selected by the Lee’s Summit Board of Education to serve as their next superintendent of schools.  Pending their board’s approval, his appointment will begin July 1, 2017.

     

    Dr. Carpenter has had a tremendous impact on our district; significantly improving the district’s data in the areas of graduation rate, ACT, student attendance and culture/climate.  He also implemented full-day pre-kindergarten for all 4 year olds in the district, elementary project-based learning/STEAM schools, and 1:1/1:2 technology throughout the district.  We wish him and his family the absolute best and look forward to the future!
