Lee's Summit R-7 School District

Why is the district focusing on Mason Elementary in this issue?

The reason that the Comprehensive Facilities Master Plan team prioritized the Mason Elementary School project is due to growth in the northeast quadrant of the District that requires additional classroom space.  While renovating buildings to meet future-ready needs of students is our goal, accommodating building capacity needs is also a top priority. Mason Elementary is currently at 110% capacity with significant growth anticipated. The district plans to prioritize other school sites, including its oldest elementary schools, in future bond issues.
