Lawmakers Seek Resolution Reducing School Administration

Kansas lawmakers are considering a resolution that seeks to reduce the number of school superintendents. Republican House Speaker Mike O'Neal of Hutchinson is supporting a measure that directs the State Board of Education to craft a plan in which superintendents each serve at least ten thousand students. O'Neal says there's not enough money to maintain existing administrative staff levels.

While the plan would not force school consolidation, it would require districts to share superintendents. Opponents say that the plan could lead to superintendents having to oversee students spread out across hundreds of square miles, particularly in rural western Kansas.
