KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The Kansas City School Board issues a bad report card to Superintendent Anthony Amato, who was hired just a year ago.
Last night the board opted not to extend Amato's three-year contract and didn't give him a raise. The Kansas City Star reports that a confidential performance review cited Amato's management style, leadership skills and communication with the board and community.
Amato warned that his action plan launched a year ago would not be easy. Many of the performance issues hinge on student test scores due out late next month. The board said new data might lead to a retroactive performance raise.
On most of the 14 standards, the board said Amato made some progress -- but not significant progress. In certain areas members
issued no-progress ratings.
