Kansas Senators Discuss New School Aid Formula
03/01/2010

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - State senators want to know more about a proposal to change the way Kansas distributes aid to its 293 school districts.

The plan was developed by Republican Sen. Steve Abrams of Arkansas City, a former member of the State Board of Education. The Senate Education Committee discussed the proposal Monday.

Abrams' plan would reduce some state funding to small districts. It would also revise the way state aid is calculated for students considered at risk of academic failure.

The committee took limited testimony, but members said they want a fuller discussion of the plan and will schedule more review later in the session.

School formula is SB 539.
