Mission: To facilitate communication, advise and partner with the LSR7 Board of Education, Superintendent and community to ensure a successful and innovative school system that maximizes each student’s potential.
History: Dr. Bernard Campbell, former LSR7 superintendent, established the CAC in 1952 to help with the passage of a bond issue to build a new school. The organization stayed together and through the succeeding years, the CAC became more structured and broadened its role to research pertinent educational issues through a 1997 reorganization. We welcome involvement and opinions from the community. Our challenge has been to offer recommendations to the LSR7 Board of Education which are fiscally sound and prudent, but also reflect this community’s vision for education. These are exciting and challenging times for education and the CAC! We welcome the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the community. We will continue in our role as communicators and update you on our progress and solicit your assistance as we move forward.

Mission: To foster productive relationships and strong partnerships between the LSR7 School District, the business community and local and state leaders.
History: The Business Roundtable was founded in 2011 after it was determined that while there were many communication avenues and informal collaborations with the business community, there was a need for a more formal and regular opportunity to discuss ideas and garner feedback from this valuable stakeholder group. This is a team chartered by the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District Superintendent.
Membership: The membership includes representatives from the R-7 Board of Education, local business owners, city government officials and R-7 staff members. The group meets quarterly.
