Handful of Kansas Schools Could See Swings in Taxes

KSAL StaffJuly 2, 2016

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A handful of small, rural Kansas school districts face spikes in local property taxes or spending cuts because they’re losing state aid under a new education funding law.

But a few other rural districts could see tax levies decrease significantly.

Dozens of districts of all sizes will see modest decreases because the state will give them additional aid for the 2016-17 school year.

The new law that took effect Friday focuses on smoothing out the taxes imposed by school districts. It’s part of an education funding system designed to prevent an over-reliance on local levies so that educational offerings across the state don’t vary too widely.

Districts that are losing some of the aid they’d been promised must increase taxes to make it up.
