During its regularly scheduled meeting on Dec. 13, 2022, the Kansas State Board of Education started its public hearing to consider the adoption of proposed rules and regulations of the Kansas State Board of Education on a permanent basis. That public hearing was originally announced via publication in the Oct. 6, 2022, issue of the Kansas Register. Although the proposed changes were shared with members of the State Board prior to the meeting, a computer error left the proposed changes out of the publicly available materials published on the KSDE website. This error was not known until the morning of Dec. 13.
The State Board of Education will continue the Dec. 13 public hearing at 1:30 p.m., or as soon thereafter as possible, on Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2023, in the Board Room of the Landon State Office Building, 900 S.W. Jackson Ave., Suite 102, Topeka, Kansas, to consider the adoption of proposed rules and regulations of the Kansas State Board of Education on a permanent basis.
