How Kansas school districts would fare under equalization

File photo

Here’s how Kansas school districts would be affected if the state restored the old equalization formula, which gave districts more aid based on a variety of factors, including property values and student population. The state Supreme Court said returning to the old formula would satisfy concerns about inequitable funding.

But doing that would be politically unpopular in some areas of the state. Under the old formula, most Wichita area districts would get more money. Other districts, including those in Johnson County, would lose state aid.

Here are numbers provided by the Kansas Department of Education that show how each district would fare.
