Looks like Acadmie Lafeyette has purchased the Derrick Thomas Acadmey. Not sure if this will be for a new high school or just expansion for its current classes.

It looks like it will be for a high school. They are hoping to open in 2018. The same year, they are also hoping to expand the kindergarten class from 120 to 200. It's unclear how that will be done, but I'm guessing that perhaps the 7th and 8th grades could move to the Derrick Thomas site as well, freeing up more room in the other schools:

There is now an Acadamie Lafayette Coming Soon sign at the old Derrick Thomas Academy and it looks like work is in full swing. I'm not sure if they are still on track for opening this fall, but I hope so.

Redistrict new map

You can see the population trends in the district. They pulled all of the crossroads out of the rest of downtown.

This should be closely mirrored in council redistricting in 2021.

The populations and ethnicity %s that they show, is that the numbers of students going to a district school or the number of school age children regardless of where they go?

It appears to me they did the opposite of what you said. They consolidated crossroads with downtown, westside, and northeast.

It looks like the number listed is the total population and demographic breakdown of each sub-district.

Has to be populations of school age children at around 200k. If all children and not just breakdown of those enrolled in KCMSD, I’m surprised at the 40% black population. It shows how segregated we still are and how much I probably need to expand where I go in the city. I would have thought we were predominantly white, but that only shows 40%. Time to diversify some more.

The map is only the kcmo school district which is itself only a portion of the city south of the river. So 200k is about right for the total population of the area. Kcmo school district has only 15k students. There are another 15k or so children in charter/private schools.

This is just those in a district school. Doesn’t include those in charters or private.
