KC school board plan would give mayor an advisory role

In an attempt to save itself, the Kansas City school board is considering giving the mayor an advisory role and seeking a new law to elect all its members at large. The board will be debating a plan for a three-member panel of advisers who would be appointed by the mayor and sit in on most open and closed board meetings, board President Airick Leonard West said Tuesday.
