Monday’s board of education meeting moved to SM West

After hearing from a number of local parents, the Shawnee Mission School District announced today that it was moving Monday’s board of education meeting from the McEachen Administrative Center to Shawnee Mission West, 8800 W. 85th Street.

Superintendent Gene Johnson sent an email to one Mission Valley parent yesterday saying that, “We do not plan on moving the meeting from McEachen. There will be overflow seating in the lower level of the building.” But at 9:30 a.m. Friday the district sent out a press release announcing the location change.

The district plans to stream video from the meeting on its Web site, and will be posting a link to the page where the streaming video can be accessed sometime before Monday’s meeting.
