Early Break for Kansas School Kids? Some Districts Close Early Due to Budget Cuts

CONCORDIA, Kan. (AP) — Two school districts plan to end the school year early to save money.  The Concordia school district will release students on May 15, rather than May 21. And the Twin Valley School District, which includes Bennington and Tescott, will dismiss May 8, rather than May 20.  The Salina Journal reports that officials with both districts said the closings were necessary because of a reduction in state aid to schools.  Concordia Superintendent Bev Mortimer says the district will save about $30,000. Twin Valley Superintendent Jan Neufeld declined to estimate how much that district will save.
