Jackson County school districts: Reduced property assessments would be 'devastating'

KSHB - Kansas City Scripps

As the Jackson County Board of Equalization considers whether to halt this year's property assessment process, Kansas City Public Schools and Center School District say it would be devastating if they did. Linda Quinley, chief financial and operations officer for KCPS, told the Jackson County Board of Equalization on Wednesday morning that a reduction in property value assessments would cost the district millions of dollars in revenue.
