Steve Green, superintendent of Kansas City Public Schools, said the district is seeking temporary state accreditation now because as many as 18 students intend to transfer out of the unaccredited district under a Missouri law that allows students to transfer to nearby accredited districts with tuition paid by the unaccredited district.
