New Education plan going into effect in Kansas this year

Steven Rains - August 13, 2019 8:27 am

A new education plan is going into effect this year, bringing with it more money for Kansas schools but also other changes.

Lawmakers passed the new law hoping it will address school achievement and accountability.

Schools are receiving 90 million more dollars this year and lawmakers want to see results.

The new plan makes school districts publish a one-page accountability report to see how schools are performing.

The plan also focuses on how schools are spending money on potentially struggling students.

That research could increase the success rate of at-risk students.

Each of the next four years, a series of audits will focus on issues like at-risk education, virtual school programs, and bilingual education.

The education plan also continues a legislative task force on dyslexia in the state.
