Multiple Schools Request Emergency Funding

Associated Press - August 15, 2015 10:05 am

More than three dozen Kansas school districts are expected to ask top state officials for additional money due to budget concerns.

Their requests have renewed a debate over the new school funding law that jettisoned the old per-pupil formula for distributing more than $3.4 billion in annual aid.

The state already has received applications for extra aid from 22 districts that saw local tax revenues drop unexpectedly because of oil prices. Another 15 to 20 districts that have more students than last year will likely apply by Monday for extra aid.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback and the GOP-dominated Legislature’s eight top leaders are meeting Aug. 24 to consider the requests.

The extra funds are limited by law to $12.3 million. Kansas City’s district is asking for $2.7 million of that. buss

Good point there Doug. Perhaps if the Faculty wasn’t overpaid more of the funding could be put towards the schools educational needs. I make about 35k a year and thats total nonsense that these people are making 100k a year. No wonder we have such economic problems in Salina.
