USD 230 Legislative Priority

2017 Kansas Legislative Session

USD 230 endorses the adoption of a state wide funding formula that adequately and fairly provides for the needs of all public school students.  The formula should recognize the need to provide every student with an excellent education not merely focus on proficiency.  The funding stream should be balanced and sustainable.  The specifics of the formula should:

·       Allow for local control and decision making

·       Allocate yearly funding and resources based on student enrollment with           appropriate provisions for growth

·       Recognize the additional needs of various student groups

·       Include funding and resources for early childhood education

·       Fund the excess cost of Special Education to at least 92%

·       React to changes in the cost of living and provide funding and resources as     needed

·       Ask that all mandates by local and state government be fully funded

·       Ask that if all-day kindergarten is required that it be fully funded
