Legislative and Budget Issues

Important School Funding Information:

We will use this page to post information we receive regarding the budget crisis our school district is facing.  Our schools are looking at losing $232 per student (that translates to over $6.4 million) over the next two years.  The Shawnee Mission School District is already facing a deficit before these cuts are made.  Please use this page to stay informed and be sure to contact your legislator to let them know K-12 Education is a priority to you.
