US Supreme Court Denies Appeal from Kansas Parents

KSAL StaffDecember 7, 2015

The U.S. Supreme Court has denied an appeal from parents from the Shawnee Mission School District.

The parents asked the court to consider their case challenging a state cap on the amount of local property tax money that the district can spend on education. The court’s decision Monday not to hear the case leaves in place a decision from the U.S. Appeals Court in Denver. The appeals court ruled in June that the federal court couldn’t override the state’s funding plan

At issue is a 2010 lawsuit arguing that the state could not limit local school district funding because it creates a new inequality that punishes school districts. The parents also argued that the funding restrictions violated their federal constitutional rights.
