TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas State Board of Education plans to hold its next regular monthly meeting at the Statehouse because the department it oversees is in the midst of moving its offices.
The board's meeting is scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday.
It will be in a room on the first floor of the Statehouse normally reserved for meetings of the House Appropriations and Judiciary committees.
But by November, the 10-member board expects to be using a room in its new offices at the Landon State Office Building near the Capitol. The building is named for Alf Landon, who was governor from 1933 to 1936 and the 1936 Republican presidential nominee.
The department began moving employees to the Landon building last week and expects to finish by the end of the month.
