Impact of School Funding Legislation Update
School Budget/Finance Formula Update On Monday, June 19, the Kansas Supreme Court issued a ruling that they would allow the school finance formula passed by the legislature to go into effect on July 1. This would allow districts to remain open until a final verdict is issued on the formula. That will allow us to continue our summer latchkey and other programs during July. The court has set Tuesday, July 18 for oral arguments on the merits of the new formula. After that, the court will set a high priority on issuing their ruling. We will keep people informed as this proceeds through the process.

Process for Success/Facilities Master Plan Update
As Derby Public Schools continues to move forward with a Facilities Master Plan proposal, it is imperative that we have feedback from the community. Due to low attendance and feedback received at recent community meetings the district has contracted with Patron Insight, a service that helps gather community input. Patron Insight will formulate questions and make 400 phone calls at random to community members to gain insight into the Facilities Master Plan and possible bond proposal. They will also provide an online survey to gather even more input from a wider audience. We will provide more information on the phone and online surveys once we have specific dates from Patron Insight.
