Kansas Governor Signs "Innovative District" Law

The AP (4/24) reports that Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R) has signed a new law that "will designate some school districts as innovative and make them exempt from certain state education rules," noting that the law "establishes a pilot program that will allow 10 percent of the state's 286 school districts to be designated as innovative school districts for five years. ... The innovative districts will be exempt from several state education laws but still must conduct annual testing of students and comply with state finance laws."
