Dr. David Buck comes to Lee's Summit after serving as the superintendent of Wright City, Missouri, schools.

Coming from Wright City, Missouri, where he served as superintendent for five years, David Buck stepped into the same role for Lee's Summit schools this month.

As school districts continue to weigh their options for reopening during a pandemic, flexibility is a must, Buck said. "Every kid is different, every family situation is different."

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
The Kansas City region has long been a place where different ways of life collide. I tell the stories of people living and working where race, culture and ethnicity intersect. I examine racial equity and disparity, highlight the area's ethnic groups and communities of color, and invite all of Kansas City to explore meaningful ways to bond with and embrace cultures different from their own. Email me at luke@kcur.org.
