Districts are receiving the increased dollars promised by the Legislature. They approved an increase of $109 million in LOB equalization and $25 million in Capital Aid outlay....and that is exactly what is included in the block grants.

Topeka is choosing that scare tactic. They are getting a $5.2 million increase this year under the block grant. http://www.kansaspolicy.org/KPIBlog/1...

Districts are choosing to cash in unused snow days and positioning that as 'closing early' for political reasons. Funding is setting another new record this year. http://www.kansaspolicy.org/KPIBlog/1...

Mr. Doll should be honest about state funding and block grants. Funding is not being reduced...it is increasing statewide and for USD 497. http://www.kansaspolicy.org/KPIBlog/D...

Eudora School District to hold public forum on budget cuts tonight

I provided government documentation showing that the Eudora superintendent is consciously misleading people about school funding. Do you find anything factually inaccurate in my explanation?

School district may increase property taxes to offset expected state funding cuts

The numbers I shared do not include KPERS. They are getting an increase in non-KPERS funding this year. They are not getting $1.6 million less than this year...they are getting more than this year.

It's not coming from us. It's coming from KSDE. We're just making it convenient for citizens. Check the data yourself. http://www.ksde.org/Agency/FiscalandA...

Download SF15-092 and compare to SF15-109. Look at the total for USD 497 less KPERS in both years.
