Supreme Court Schedules School Funding Arguments

KSAL StaffJuly 6, 2016

The Kansas Supreme Court is turning its attention to whether the state is spending enough money overall on its schools.

The justices issued a brief order Wednesday setting oral arguments on that issue for Sept. 21.

The court wants the parties to also address at that time a lower panel’s remedial orders and any changes it should make to them if it ultimately upholds their findings. The panel ruled last year the state must increase its annual aid by at least $548 million.

It also gave the parties until Aug. 12 to file any supplemental written arguments.

The Supreme Court signed off last week on a new education funding law that boosts state aid to poor school districts, ending a threat that the state’s public schools would be shut down.
