KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The incoming superintendent of Kansas City, Missouri, public schools says he has begun drafting a 100-day transition plan to ease into his new job that begins in July.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1RXP57R) reports that 41-year-old Mark Bedell signed his contract Monday, then spoke with community leaders, students and district leaders.

He talked off collaborating with community and business leaders, building trust among his staff and parents, and instilling a sense of hope in district students.

Bedell is currently an assistant superintendent of high schools in Baltimore County, Maryland.

The school board last month announced that Bedell had agreed to a three-year contract with a $225,000 annual base salary.
