TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – A new Kansas commission tasked with looking for efficiencies within the state’s public school system begins a two-day meeting Thursday at the Statehouse.

A draft recommendation prepared for consideration by the K-12 Student Performance and Efficiency Commission shows the panel is considering a host of proposals. One calls for offering school districts incentives to consolidate. Another proposal calls for overhauling how teachers are paid.

Legislators created the K-12 Student Performance and Efficiency commission this year, tying it to a proposal increasing aid to poor school districts by $129 million.

Members include superintendents, former state senators, principals and the president of a conservative think tank.
