Joe Biden coming to Joplin for cutting of six-and-a-half-mile ribbon
The announcement was made today to all district staff. It had been previously announced that Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will also be here for the grand celebration, which will include the cutting of a six-and-a-half-mile ribbon, a stunt which is designed to put the school district in the Guiness Book of World Records.
District officials are in the act of coordinating travel for the day since all high school, middle school, and elementary school personnel will be required to be at the high school.
