Presentation to Legislative Budget Committee in K-12 issues concludes. KASB will have a full report tomorrow. #ksleg #ksed #kasb

Mr. Dennis notes that enrollment will be down this year as students stay home or home school, but finance law allows districts to use higher of PRIOR TWO years for enrollment count next year. #ksleg #ksed #kasb

However, he believes special education costs will increase due to higher PPE costs; also districts will need more staff, substitutes, etc. #ksleg #ksed #kasb

Mr. Dennis also does not free lunch applications will increase much, unlike previous estimates. (That would have increased at-risk weighting costs.) #ksleg #ksed #kasb

Chair McGinn asking if there needs be adjustments among district funds (savings in some areas, more costs in others). Mr. Dennis thinks it will balance out. #ksleg #ksed #kasb

Here is Mr. Dennis' testimony, with a long list of how districts used COVD relief funds: https://t.co/eUc0b3gYya #ksleg #ksed #kasb

KSDE survey found about 9.7% of students do not have internet access; for some that do, not always reliable. (Not counting students who have access but can't afford.) #ksleg #ksed #kasb

Mr. Dennis on delivery model: most school/buildings started in person; most STUDENTS (in big districts) started remove. Some started "hybrid" of both. #ksleg #ksed #kasb

Wide difference in percent of county funding going to K-12, from less than 5% to over 50%. Amount was up to county commissioner and how school districts applied. #ksleg #ksed #kasb

Mr. Dennis noting that "county" SPARK funding must be spent by Dec. of this year, other federal COVID aid can last until Sept. 2021. #ksleg #ksed #kasb

Now turning to Dept. Ed. Commissioner Dale Dennis, continuing his "retirement" tour of Legislative Committees. Still working hard to provide technical information to policy-makers. #ksleg #ksed #kasb

From county reports as of Aug. 15, it appears nearly $70 million will be allocated to school districts or other K-12 institutions from county COVID "SPARK" funds. #ksleg #ksed #kasb

Detailed presentation from KLRD; KASB will preparing an sharing total information. School districts received about $84 million in direct federal to school districts for COVID expenses. #ksleg #ksed #kasb
