SB 106 - This act establishes a Planning Commission for the Kansas City Missouri School District (KCMSD). The Commission shall consist of 15 members, including 11 members and 4 ex- officio members appointed by various specified, interested parties. The Commission shall conduct research, review and evaluation of key issues related to KCMSD and make recommendations for ways that the district may improve education, improve student performance and meet requirements applicable to school districts.

The State Board of Education may adopt an alternative plan whereby an unaccredited school district may return to accredited status, which may take more than two years, provided that the district annually meets all terms and conditions of the plan. The bill creates an Advisory Committee which shall serve as a liaison between the Commission and the community. The Advisory Committee shall seek public input and ideas to help the Commission in its efforts.

This is similar to SB 679 (2002).
