Student Success Part Of Funding Plan

KSAL StaffMarch 24, 2015

A Kansas Senate committee is considering a new education funding plan that would tie some state aid to public schools to how well students do after high school.

The Senate Education Committee had a hearing Tuesday on a plan drafted by Chairman and Arkansas City Republican Steve Abrams. He said his goal is to focus public schools on educating students so they can at least be part of the middle class.

The Legislature passed a bill this month to replace the state’s current per-student funding formula with “block grants” for school districts, but that system would be in place for only two years.

The Abrams plan would be tested on six school districts during the 2015-16 school year before being expanded to all 286 school districts over two years.
