2017-18 Full Budget Document

Additionally, the Kansas Legislature has required that districts post Form 150 from the budget document. Prior to the 2017-18 school year, Form 151 - in correspondence with the block grant (Senate Bill 7) - was used to determine the general fund for school districts.  With the implementation of Senate Bill 19 during the 2017 legislative session, school finance returned to a formula based funding mechanism. Thus, the replacement for Form 151 - Form 150 - was used to indicate the calculations and distributions for school districts. Form 150, along with a document noting the cash balances on hand at the beginning of the 2017-18 school year, are included below.
