Kansas Superintendents Outline Efficiencies

Associated Press - August 21, 2015 8:03 am

School superintendents seeking supplemental state funding are responding to lawmaker’s request to outline how they’re saving money.

Superintendents Robert Shannon and Jeff Bollinger worked Thursday to respond to the request by four Republican legislators for evidence of budget austerity ahead of a meeting in which more than three dozen Kansas districts will seek supplemental funding.

Shannon, the top administrator in the Manhattan-Ogden district, says the district in Riley County was justified in filing a request to address enrollment growth after slicing into cash reserves, raising property taxes and reducing expenditures for personnel and supplies by $1 million.

Bollinger, the superintendent in Satanta, says the district is saving money by delivering curriculum in language arts, science and social studies via iPads rather than traditional textbooks.

How about a list of the schools wanting money so we can look up how they spend the money given them. Seems to me the schools always have their hands out and get money but the students graduating have less and less knowledge and skills every year.

Did the usd305 Salina superintendent outline that the district’s budget is higher than the city and county’s budgets added together? How disgusting is this?
