Kansas Supreme Court to Take up School Funding Case

KSAL StaffNovember 5, 2015

The Kansas Supreme Court is preparing to weigh arguments in a lawsuit that claims the state’s school districts are inadequately funded.

A three-judge Shawnee County District Court panel found in June that the state’s newly enacted strategy for financing 286 school districts and cuts to state aid for low-income school districts were unconstitutional. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt requested a stay on the district court’s order while he pursued an appeal.

The Supreme Court approved the stay and scheduled oral arguments for Friday.

Schmidt and Gov. Sam Brownback have repeatedly argued that the judicial panel in the school finance case overstepped its constitutional authority.
