Missouri Commissioner of Education Chris Nicastro has asked the Kansas City school board to consider giving up control of the district to a not-yet-created special administrative board.

The state board of education voted in September to strip the district of its provisional accreditation, effective Jan. 1.

State law gives the district until 2014 to regain accreditation and avoid a state takeover. However, the statute also says the district's corporate organization would lapse if the district were still unaccredited after a second full school year. At that point, the state school board could install a special appointed board "if such a board has not already been appointed."
