Legislature to Look at Funding, Again

 There’s no lawsuit (yet) forcing the hand of the legislature, but funding for schools will be an issue.

Here’s what the Topeka Capital-Journal has to say:

“Efforts will be made to redefine how school districts spend money. A bipartisan proposal will try to place money to complete the three-year deal in a reserve fund. Raising the amount districts can raise through local-option budgets will be on the table.”

It also mentions that KPERS, the retirement system that includes teachers, will be up for discussion:

“Options include higher employee contribution rates, lower early-retirement subsidies, and adjustment of benefits for future employees.”
