School Transfer Bill Proposed

KSAL StaffApril 6, 2015

A Kansas state senator is proposing a bill intended to ensure that school districts can’t remove current students who live outside their boundaries.

But critics say Republican Sen. Ty Masterson’s bill is a solution in search of a problem. They claim it doesn’t address the main reason behind some districts limiting new, transfer students — budget cuts related to the state’s new law establishing temporary block grants for schools.

Masterson’s bill comes after two Shawnee County districts say they don’t plan on accepting out-of-district students next school year.

Administrators note that it won’t affect current nonresident students, but Masterson says he wants legislation that guarantees they’re protected. He adds the bill wouldn’t require districts to continue to accept new nonresident students.
