Prev Article 51. - SCHOOL DISTRICT STATE AIDNext


72-5135. Same; distribution of state foundation aid. (a) The distribution of state foundation aid under this act shall be made in accordance with appropriation acts each year as provided in this section.

(b) (1) In the months of July through May of each school year, the state board shall determine the amount of state foundation aid that will be required by each school district to maintain operations in each such month. In making such determination, the state board shall take into consideration the school district's access to local foundation aid and the obligations of the general fund that must be satisfied during the month. The amount determined by the state board under this provision is the amount of state foundation aid that will be distributed to the school district in the months of July through May.

(2) In the month of June of each school year, payment shall be made of the full amount of the state foundation aid determined for the school year less the sum of the monthly payments made in the months of July through May pursuant to subsection (b)(1).

(c) Payments of state foundation aid shall be distributed to school districts once each month on the dates prescribed by the state board. The state board shall certify to the director of accounts and reports the amount due as state foundation aid to each school district in each of the months of July through June. Such certification, and the amount of state foundation aid payable from the state general fund, shall be approved by the director of the budget. The director of accounts and reports shall draw warrants on the state treasurer payable to the school district treasurer of each school district, pursuant to vouchers approved by the state board. Upon receipt of such warrant, each school district treasurer shall deposit the amount of state foundation aid in the general fund of the school district, except that an amount equal to the amount of federal impact aid not included in the local foundation aid of a school district may be disposed of as provided in K.S.A. 2017 Supp. 72-5166(a), and amendments thereto.

(d) If any amount of state foundation aid that is due to be paid during the month of June of a school year pursuant to the other provisions of this section is not paid on or before June 30 of such school year, then such payment shall be paid on or after the ensuing July 1, as soon as moneys are available therefor. Any payment of state foundation aid that is due to be paid during the month of June of a school year and that is paid to school districts on or after the ensuing July 1 shall be recorded and accounted for by school districts as a receipt for the school year ending on the preceding June 30.
