Kansas Supreme Court says constitutional requirement for school-funding equity is met

TOPEKA, Kan. – The Kansas Supreme Court today held that the Legislature has equitably funded Kansas schools in compliance with the state Constitution. The order was issued this afternoon, one day after Attorney General Derek Schmidt and the plaintiffs in the school finance litigation jointly asked the court to approve the Legislature’s work on equity from the recent special legislative session.

“It’s official,” Schmidt said. “The Legislature has satisfied the Constitution’s requirement for equitable school funding, and Kansas public schools will remain open and operating.”
