Annexation Boundary Line Debate

In November 2007, the voters of Independence, Missouri and Kansas City, Missouri, voted for seven schools, consisting of one high school, one middle school, and five elementary schools, to be taken over by the Independence School District. This is perceived as another major setback for the Kansas City, Missouri School District and a huge undertaking with a great boon for Western Independence.

The transfer did not include the C. R. Anderson School, which was originally called the Pitcher School. KCMSD annexed the school in 1957. The school became an alternative school for troubled students in the 1980s. The school closed in 2000.[1]
