​WHAT DO WE WANT FOR OUR SCHOOLS IN THE FUTURE?

Send your comments about public school funding to Topeka. Gov. Sam Brownback is inviting comment on the development of a new school funding formula in Kansas. The governor has asked Kansans to submit their comments by Nov. 30 to StudentsFirst@ks.gov. In 2015 the Kansas Legislature voted to repeal the 1992 school finance formula, citing the complexity and unpredictability of the formula. In its place, the Legislature instituted a block grant funding system. This system froze funding for two years while a new funding formula could be developed. This block grant system will expire in 2017 and Brownback has invited public input into the development of a new school funding mechanism.
