Kathy Campbell LSR7 School Board

Kathy Campbell recently announced her candidacy for the 2020 LSR7 Board of Education race. Living in Lee’s Summit for over 20 years, Kathy raised both of her sons in the LSR7 district and has volunteered in many different capacities through the district, always with the goal of what best serves our LSR7 kids and their education.

Professionally, Kathy works in Information Technology Program Management, implementing large scale technology programs and projects. Planning strategically with the organization’s Executive teams for technologies that support their initiatives, Kathy also knows how to roll up her sleeves to get into the details with teams to resolve barriers and get things moving to success. Further, she manages large program budgets and vendor relationships. “I think what really sets me apart in my role is the focus I put on the changes’ projects bring to people and how to help everyone impacted move through the changes necessary for success”, Kathy stated.

A lifelong learner, Kathy has a BBA with an emphasis on Computer Based Information Systems and an MBA both from UMKC. She continues to challenge herself every day with learning new tools and concepts to lead teams and effect change.

Kathy’s priorities and reasons for running for the Board are simple:

• Ensure we do what we promise – direction, oversight and tracking accountability on execution regarding commitments for CFMP Phase II, Equity and Portrait of a Graduate

• Plan for the future – Lead, engage and listen to build and adopt a Strategic Plan for the district that includes strategic alignment with the City of Lee’s Summit and Community Partners

• Transparency – Creation of comprehensive and actionable communication strategies and Community engagement at all levels

• Partner through Change – partner and lead Students, Parents, Teachers, Staff, Administrators and the Community through the changes needed for our district for sustained growth – fulfilling the commitments on improving student experience and overall student achievement

“I am passionate about educational opportunities for all of our LSR7 kids! I’m ready to work hard and do my homework – listening, learning – asking the tough questions to make sure our strategic direction and decisions as a Board are seen in the success of every one of our LSR7 students.” To learn more about Kathy Campbell, visit her website at https://www.kathy4lsr7kids.com/.
