Kansas School Board Approves $7.2M in Extra Aid to Districts

KSAL StaffAugust 4, 2016

The Kansas State Board of Education has approved a total of $7.2 million in additional state aid to 31 public school districts.

But it’s not clear how much money the districts actually will receive after the board’s action Thursday.

Legislators financed the “extraordinary needs” aid with proceeds from selling off an economic development agency’s assets. The sale must generate $38 million for districts to get all their funds, and state officials aren’t sure it’s possible.

Thirty-four districts applied for a total of $8.4 million. All but three received some funds.

The largest allocations were nearly $849,000 for the Spring Hill district in Johnson County to help it deal with increased numbers of students, and nearly $687,000 for the Wichita district to help it deal with an increase in refugee students.
