Kansas Senate leaders want to shift school funding and allow districts to raise taxes

The plan calls for adding $134 million to support local schools in response to a Kansas Supreme Court ruling that found a funding disparity between property-rich and property-poor districts. A key element to the plan would give local school districts the ability to raise more property taxes with voter approval, something long sought in Johnson County. That holds the potential to more than offset any money that Johnson County schools would lose because of changes made in the finance formula.
