Dr. Green is credited with leading Kansas City Public Schools back to provisional accreditation within two years of being named its superintendent in 2012.

In August 2014, Missouri’s board of education recognized the district’s gain by granting KCPS provisional accreditation. The Missouri Association of School Administrators named Dr. Green the 2015 Pearce Award Winner, an award given annually to the state’s Superintendent of the Year.

Dr. Green received a Bachelor of Science in English Literature and Composition and a Master of Arts in English Literature from Ball State University and his Principal’s Certification from Butler University.
