JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri education officials are planning a series of public hearings on ideas for helping unaccredited school districts boost student achievement.

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education said it wants to hear what the public has to say about several plans it's received from education organizations as well as a study it commissioned.

The department will use the feedback as it creates a statewide plan for supporting and possibly intervening in unaccredited schools. The agency plans to submit its recommendation to the State Board of Education next month.

The first hearing takes place Wednesday in Kansas City. The second is Feb. 4 in St. Louis, and the last two are scheduled Feb. 6 in southeast and southwest Missouri.
