The Kansas State Board of Education on Thursday approved about $7 million for schools that applied for additional state aid.
Of the 34 school districts that applied, 31 are slated to receive “extraordinary needs” aid. But how much the districts actually receive will depend on how much the state earns from the sale of the Kansas Bioscience Authority.
Of the 31 school districts, Johnson County’s Spring Hill would be given the most. The district requested $941,440 and was approved for $848,580. The district requested the money to cover the cost of increased enrollment.
