TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- Your local school board would get extra authority to up your property taxes, under a school funding plan unveiled by Republican leaders in the Kansas Senate.
The plan is designed to meet a Kansas Supreme Court mandate for the state to boost aid to poor districts.
The Senate GOP proposal provides $134 million to poor districts.
It would allow school districts to use property taxes to raise a local option budget of 33 percent, the state currently allows 31 percent.
