COPY-KC to consider new uses more closed schools

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Kansas City school district is making plans to transform more of its closed buildings.

The cash-strapped district shuttered nearly half its schools two years ago. A committee has been working since then to find new uses for those schools and others closed previously.

At a meeting Wednesday, the school board will consider proposals from administrators to turn one school into a grocery store. A second school would be used for senior housing and a health clinic, and a third would house medical offices.

Several other proposals have been discussed or approved.
