Discussion Continues On School Finance

KSCB News - January 9, 2012 8:29 am

Gov. Sam Brownback’s proposal to rewrite the
Kansas school finance formula gets another round of discussion this
week by the State Board of Education.
The plan would represent the first complete revision of the
formula since the early 1990s.
The Board of Education will discuss the proposal at its monthly
meeting on Tuesday. Brownback policy director Landon Fulmer, the
plan’s chief architect, briefed the board in December about the
plan and will be present to answer more questions.
Brownback is expected to send the plan to the Legislature
sometime in the next few weeks.
Kansas distributes about $3 billion in aid to 286 school
districts through a formula based on student needs and
demographics.
