Community Celebrates Opening of Missouri Innovation Campus

Lee’s Summit School District’s newly constructed Missouri Innovation Campus celebrated a grand opening on Tuesday.

Hundreds of people attended the event at the new building, which is located at 1101 Innovation Parkway. It opened its doors in mid-August, just in time for the 2017-18 school year.

The new Missouri Innovation Campus comes after voters approved a $40 million bond issue in 2015.

The Lee’s Summit school district is paying for 40 percent of the new school with the University of Central Missouri paying the remaining 60 percent. Through the agreement, the district said it’s the sole owner of the facility with the university paying its portion of costs through lease payments.
