KS Education Commissioner: Schools Face Major Changes

wider logo

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The state's education commissioner says possible policy changes will make next year one of the busiest years in a decade for Kansas educators. Commissioner Diane DeBacker told the State Board of Education Tuesday that 2013 could be the busiest year since the No Child Left Behind law was enacted in 2001. DeBacker said the board will consider changes such as adopting new science standards, new history and government standards and deciding how to tie teacher evaluations to student achievement. Educators also will be implementing Common Core State Standards and deciding what type of assessments will be used. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports at least four of the 10 state board members will be newly elected, and they'll be working with a Legislature where several members will also be new.
