The Kansas Legislature has passed a bill that attempts to satisfy the Kansas Supreme Court’s equity decision on funding of Kansas public schools. The bill passed the House and Senate a mere 48 hours after being introduced. A number of legislators who debated the equity finance bill expressed deep concerns that the bill will not satisfy the Kansas Supreme Court’s ruling. The court has determined that the legislature has until June 30, 2016 to fix the problem or Kansas public schools will be unable to operate. Legislators have been trying to assemble a funding plan that would address the equity issue. Some plan options include returning to portions of the school finance formula, change the current block grant law or write a new formula that is constitutional. The bill that was passed by the legislature re-distributes capital outlay and local option budget funding that will cost only about 2 million dollars. The plan also determines that no school district will lose any funding from the previous year’s budget.
