Efforts to reach Green for comment Wednesday were not successful.
Kansas City Schools officials detailed corrective steps the district is taking to avoid future instances, including revised training for attendance monitors, improving student information system management and an attendance standard operating procedure guide.
“While we are disappointed and frustrated by the findings of this report, we are also grateful that the current district leadership took decisive action to address the outcomes of the report with the appropriate parties, and subsequently implement the necessary personnel decisions,” Kansas City Public Schools chairwoman Pattie Mansur said.
Kansas City Schools lost its accreditation effective January 1, 2012. Under Green, the district was able to earn provisional accreditation, partially due to the inflated attendance figures. That work was touted when he was chosen to lead the rebounding DeKalb County School District in 2015, which at the time was “accredited on advisement” by accrediting agency AdvancED.
The DeKalb County Board of Education severed ties with Green on Nov. 11, unrelated to the news out of Kansas City. He currently is under investigation by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission for failing to report educators for various ethics violations.
