1897:  Until the schools obtained financial relief, shifts were made in classes.  The 8A class at Reynolds and Armstrong moved to Riverview.  Morse's 8B transferred to Armourdale School, and the 5B at McAlpine went to Riverview and Central.  A committee sent to Topeka was assured of legislative help with money problems.  The board first appealed for a $75,000 bond election, but later reduced the sum to $60,000.

On September 3, 1903, the name of Reynolds School was changed to PrescottThe History of the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools by Nellie McGuinn.  See Prescott web page for full history.
