Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is urging districts to move more of the money they get into the classroom and hold down administrative costs of running the school.
Johnson County police say a handgun was found in a student’s backpack outside Spring Hill High School.
A Johnson County sheriff’s deputy assigned as a school resource officer was checking on a report of a student “in need of care” outside the school Thursday when the gun was found.
Spring Hill School District officials later posted a notice about the incident on the district website.
The sheriff’s office says the student wasn’t arrested, but was given help in obtaining mental health treatment.
Spring Hill is a community of about 5,500 residents in southern Johnson County.
