Correction: Kansas Reading Roadmap would be funded under governor’s proposed budget

In the KASB Daily Education Roundup for Monday, Feb. 11, the status of funding for the Kansas Reading Roadmap in the governor’s budget was incorrectly stated.

Gov. Laura Kelly has proposed funding for Kansas Reading Roadmap for the next fiscal year. Kelly’s budget is currently being reviewed by various legislative committees.

Kansas Reading Roadmap serves about 5,500 students in 60 sites across the state, partnering with school districts and non-profits to increase early reading proficiency through after school and family engagement programs.

The Feb. 11 Education Roundup has also been corrected. The governor’s proposed budget would delete state general funding for a program called Kansas Reading Success.
