SALINA, Kan. (AP) — Some Kansas officials are questioning whether a state law meant to exempt school districts from some education regulations is just another layer of red tape.
A 2013 Kansas law allows school districts to be excluded from certain rules involving public education if they present plans to improve student achievement. The Coalition of Innovative School Districts met Tuesday.
The Salina Journal reports coalition members discussed how districts should notify the group and government agencies of regulations they wanted to be exempted from.
But some members questioned whether the law meant to give a blanket exemption to any district, or whether each exemption needed separate approval.
