- **ACTION NEEDED: A Note From The Principal**
The state of Kansas is facing large cuts to education. These cuts
are due to revenue declines, caused by the governor's income tax cuts.
Our governor is proposing a system in which local school districts are
being asked to raise funds for their own schools. This would negatively
impact KCKPS as the city of Kansas City, Kansas does not have the
assessed valuation that other cities have. This greatly reduces our
opportunity to raise funds.
The answer, force our state to fund
adequately the current education finance system by reversing the
income tax cuts that caused this massive deficit. We are asking
all families to take a moment and call our state representative
and let them know that, "it is our expectation that the state
correctly fund our current financing formula for education and
reverse the income tax cuts that led to this deficit."
Our students deserve this and our state owes it to its constituents to
Representative Broderick Henderson (785) 296-7697 or
Senator David Haley (785) 296-7376.
Our voice MUST be heard! It's for our future - our students!
