CARBONDALE, Kan. (AP) - A rural Osage County school district is dropping its efforts to become part of the state’s new innovative district program.

Santa Fe Trail Unified School District says it will continue using new initiatives described in the district’s application for the program, which allows districts to waive some state laws and regulations.

The district, which has about 1,050 students, was one of eight school districts that applied to become part of the Coalition of Innovative Districts, created by the Legislature in the spring of 2013 to give districts more flexibility.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1usEcdB ) reports Santa Fe’s application was not forwarded to the Kansas Board of Education for consideration and school officials say they will not reapply.
