Long-Term Budgets

Multi-year plans?

Some state officials think it would be a good idea to make Kansas’ historic three-year school funding plan a four-year plan.

“Anything that will allow schools to plan ahead and better direct resources where they’re most needed to help students would be welcome,” said Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. “It would be a big improvement if we can move beyond the year-by-year approach of the past that left teachers, parents and administrators in the dark until the last minute.”

Traditionally, the Legislature approves a one-year school funding plan, which usually comes at the end of the legislative session and just months before schools set their budgets for the upcoming year.
