|Legislature releases block grant school funding |
Posted Date: 03/12/2015
Earlier today, Legislative leaders introduced the much anticipated block grant school funding concept. Though we do not know the details, nor the ultimate impact on Andover Public Schools, we are pleased that the process is moving forward. The sooner we know our level of state funding, the easier it is for us to proactively plan for next school year. We have a highly professional, dedicated staff that is doing an outstanding job of educating over 5,000 students. Being able to start the budget development process earlier this spring will help us target our resources. The Kansas State Department of Education is working through the details of how this proposed legislation will impact our district and we will keep you updated as time goes on.
