Comparing Kansas 2019 prepared by KASB June 12, 2019

The KASB Comparing Kansas report data provides information related to the Kansas State Board of Education’s Kansans Can outcomes and the “Rose Capacities” identified by the Kansas Supreme Court as a standard of constitutional funding and adopted as educational goals by the Kansas Legislature. It also allows Kansas educational performance, funding and other factors to be compared to other states.

#Funding Helps Students

The following report has been prepared from school district responses to KASB on how they are using additional funding approved by the Legislature. Yellow highlights indicate responses that are specifically targeted at low-performing, at-risk students, special education, bilingual and vocational programs, student health and safety, and programs to improve graduation and preparation for college and careers. It should be stressed that other funding, such as salary increases, support the educational program for all students, including those with special needs.
