TOPEKA, Kansas — A state panel looking for financial efficiencies within the state's public school system will recommend that school districts be audited annually, but it stopped short of endorsing a limit on required teacher negotiation rights.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1tN44G3 ) reports the K-12 Student Performance and Efficiency Commission on Tuesday approved the final draft of its recommendations. The commission was appointed last year to identify potential cost savings in school spending plans.

The group decided to recommend a bill requiring annual audits, but added language saying the Legislature must pay for them after former Republican Sen. John Vratil, a commission member, chastised the panel for considering a measure that included an unfunded mandate.

The commission had until early this month to make its recommendations.
