August 22, 2017
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — In towns and cities along the path of the solar eclipse, some school districts are seizing the opportunity for ready-made science lessons while others chose to take the day off.
The North Kansas City school district will experience a total blackout during Monday's eclipse. It's planning age-specific activities for its 20,000 students and staff. Jill Hackett, a deputy superintendent, says the educational opportunity is irresistible.
