FORT OSAGE R-I - Missouri School District

About School District: On August 9, 1949, Jackson County voters approved a county-wide reorganization plan whereby the 83 districts were divided into 15 units. The district we know today was created from 16 rural districts and the Buckner and Levasy High School districts. The 16 rural schools had an enrollment of 246 children, Buckner had 238, and Levasy had 88. On August 30, 1949, a special school election was held to elect six directors for Reorganized District No. 1 of Jackson County (Fort Osage School District's name). The first recorded meeting was held in the First State Bank of Buckner on September 2, 1949.
