Education officials say Kansas has until next spring to revise the way it evaluates teachers to factor in students' performance on standardized tests.

The officials told State Board of Education members Tuesday that a commission of teachers and administrators will begin working on proposals next month. The commission's first report is expected in December.

Kansas was granted a waiver in June from key provisions of the No Child Left Behind law, which requires all students to be proficient in reading and math by 2014.

Federal officials are pushing Kansas to revise its teacher evaluation method so that they're judged partly by how well students do on standardized tests in reading and math.
