Six School Districts To Close Early

KSAL StaffApril 21, 2015

At least six school districts in Kansas plan to close a few days early this May because of budget concerns.

A K-12 block grant bill, which cut about $50 million in operating and maintenance aid from the budgets of most school districts in the state, went into effect for the current school year.

According to superintendents, school board minutes and public announcements on district websites, schools that have shortened their calendars are Concordia Unified School District 333, Twin Valley USD 240, Smoky Valley USD 400, Haven USD 312, Skyline USD 438 and Shawnee Heights USD 450.

Most school districts in the state exceed the required amount of days for a school year, which makes it possible for them to drop a few days without violating any rules.
