​Kansas School Officials Uncertain Amid Funding Fight

SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) — School administrators across Kansas are trying to figure out how a recent state Supreme Court ruling will affect their ability to provide critical summer programs and prepare for the fall semester that begins in August. Some districts are taking a wait-and-see approach to a stalemate between the Legislature and the court, which threatened last week to cease all school functions on July 1 if lawmakers don't find a way to resolve shortcomings in the current funding formula. Other districts are busy creating contingency plans for what they will do if the issue is not resolved and the court follows through with its threat. Kansas Association of School Boards lobbyist Mark Tallman says the problem for most school districts is that they aren't sure what the court's ruling means.
