KCK Budget Announced

The KCK school system announced that it plans on having a $244 million budget.

Among the points mentioned in the Kansas City Kansan article:

– State Base State Aid Per Pupil (BSAPP) has been increased by $600 since 1997. (That’s $15,000 for a classroom of  25 students.) Remember, BSAPP is, as the name suggests, the foundation, the lowest level of funding. Various categorical amounts are added to that.- Enrollment in the district is going down over time.

– Only 54 percent of funds went to teacher pay.

– Cynthia Lane, assistant superintendent for business and instructional support services, blamed the legislature for cutting funding.
