Kansas High Court Discussing School Funding

KSAL StaffMarch 3, 2015

The Kansas Supreme Court is considering whether a lower-court panel should still review a lawsuit over state funding for public schools.

The Supreme Court directed school districts that sued the state in 2010 to declare in writing Tuesday whether they want a three-judge panel in Shawnee County District Court to have more hearings in the case.

The lower-court panel ruled in December that the state isn’t adequately funding schools.

The state asked the panel in January to reconsider. The aggrieved school districts filed their own request to block legislators from tampering with additional aid to poor districts approved last year.

The panel has a hearing scheduled for Thursday.

But the state also appealed the panel’s ruling to the Supreme Court and now wants the higher court to handle the case.
