TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) A top aide to Gov. Sam Brownback will brief the State Board of Education next week on the administration’s proposal for distributing aid to public schools.
Brownback policy director Landon Fulmer will speak to the 10-member board during its monthly meeting Nov. 8.
Brownback wants to change the way Kansas distributes about $3 billion in state aid to school districts.
The proposal includes setting a new baseline for state aid, giving districts block grants and letting counties vote on a special sales tax for education. Brownback is expected to present the plan to legislators when they return in January for the 2012 session.
