SCHOOL FUNDING FOR 2016 - 2017 APPROVED:
The state legislature approved a new funding plan, adding money back into education. The plan was signed by the Governor and approved by the Kansas Supreme Court. Therefore, all talk of closing schools for the upcoming year has come to an end. The battle that took place before this action was taken was over the "Equity" issue in school funding. Now that this has been resolved, the next hurdle is the "Adequacy" issue in school funding. This argument will begin sometime during the upcoming school year and will be the next issue that schools, the courts, the legislature and the Governor will have to face.
Just a reminder - parents will receive an enrollment packet in the mail later this summer. When you do receive the packet, please take time to check over all the information. If you come to enrollment with all the forms filled out, it will save you some time.
I do hope that everyone has a safe and fun summer and that you get some quality family time!!
