Initial Report from Encompass Resolution

On August 31, 2020, the Kirkwood School Board of Education approved the recommendation of Encompass Resolution, LLC, to conduct an independent assessment based on recent public and private allegations of the handling of student and staff reporting sexual abuse, misconduct, and inappropriate behavior.

During the January 25 board meeting, Encompass Resolution provided an initial assessment report. The report is the first phase in this work and subsequent reports will follow to achieve the overarching goals stated at the beginning of this process. The recommendations included several additional items to post on schools’ websites and additional training for students and staff. You will be hearing more about all of this from us in the coming weeks.

The presentation submitted to the board can be found on BoardDocs: https://go.boarddocs.com/mo/ksdmo/Board.nsf/goto?open&id=BXGPJ4648EC1.
