Three community colleges sue Kansas Board of Regents

DODGE CITY, Kan. | Three community colleges have sued the Kansas Board of Regents claiming unequal funding for some of their vocational and technical programs.

The lawsuit by Dodge City Community College, Pratt Community College and Cowley Community College seeks a temporary injunction against what it calls unfair funding.

The colleges claim the board reimburses its full-time enrollment figures in certain vocational and technical programs at a rate three times below that provided to other Kansas community colleges.

The lawsuit ultimately seeks a permanent injunction forcing the Board of Regents to implement equitable funding formulas for all vocational and technical programs. It also seeks past and future compensatory damages.
