ROSEVILLE, Minn. (AP) — State Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius is introducing 12-member committee charged with evaluating the use of state funds to integrate K-12 schools.

The education bill passed during the 2011 special session required the task force to study the state integration aid program and then make recommendations back to the Legislature.

Cassellius named six of the members. The House and Senate each named three more members. The committee will have its first meeting next Tuesday.

Among members are William Green, the former superintendent of Minneapolis schools; state Rep. Carlos Mariani, D-St. Paul, and Katherine Kersten, a fellow at the Center for the American Experiment, a conservative think tank in Minneapolis.

About 140 school districts receive funding under the program.
