Satanta Superintendent Responds to Lawmaker’s Request

KSCB News - August 21, 2015 5:53 am

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – School superintendents seeking supplemental state funding are responding to lawmaker’s request to outline how they’re saving money.

Superintendents Robert Shannon and Jeff Bollinger worked Thursday to respond to the request by four Republican legislators for evidence of budget austerity ahead of a meeting in which more than three dozen Kansas districts will seek supplemental funding.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports ( ) that Shannon, the top administrator in the Manhattan-Ogden district, says the district in Riley County was justified in filing a request to address enrollment growth after slicing into cash reserves, raising property taxes and reducing expenditures for personnel and supplies by $1 million.

Bollinger, the superintendent in Satanta, says the district is saving money by delivering curriculum in language arts, science and social studies via iPads rather than traditional textbooks.
