Attorneys seeking a settlement over a lawsuit challenging the state's school finance system say two days of talks have been unsuccessful.

Attorneys seeking a settlement over a lawsuit challenging the state’s school finance system say two days of talks have been unsuccessful.

The parties filed a status report Wednesday with the Kansas Supreme Court. Attorneys representing the state and plaintiff school districts and parents met for mediation Monday and Tuesday.

A three-judge panel in Shawnee County District Court ruled in January that the state’s system for funding public schools was unconstitutional. The ruling suggested the state was shortchanging public schools by at least $440 million.

The case is set for hearing before the justices on Oct. 8 and a ruling is expected around the start of 2014.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback and Attorney General Derek Schmidt, also a Republican, asked the court to approve mediation in hopes of settling the case.
