State Board of Education to discuss changes to undergrad admission standards

The State Board of Education on Wednesday will discuss changes to the undergraduate admissions standards for public universities.

Last September, the Kansas Board of Regents approved removing the class rank requirement from the criteria to enter a state university and replacing it with a grade point average (GPA) requirement.

The decision has the potential to change pre-college curriculum, high school course offerings, high school graduation requirements and accreditation regulations.

Also on Wednesday, the board will act on computer science standards.

On Tuesday, the board will recognize the 2020 Kansas Teacher of the Year team; consider Kansas Model Standards for handwriting and hear a report on visiting international teacher program.

Here is a link to the board’s agenda and backup documents.
