TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A legislative oversight committee is scheduled to consider seeking additional audits of Kansas school district operations and a new review of the cost to implement national education standards.

The Legislative Post Audit Committee has asked the state's independent auditing staff to review school district operations over recent years, looking for ways to help districts find efficiencies in spending and organization.

The audits generally have found that districts could save money by purchasing supplies in bulk and by modifying the way their academic schedules are assembled.

Committee members will meet Tuesday in Topeka to discuss future audits, as well as the need to determine how much additional money it will cost schools to implement new national academic standards.

The changes, developed by a coalition of states, seek to provide common expectations.
