Many predict the State of Kansas will discontinue school construction aid to school districts passing bond issues for facility improvements. Voters in the Central of Burden district, USD 462, must consider this question as they decide by mail-in ballot whether or not to pass a a $6.4 million bond proposal to improve their schools. The State would currently participate alongside USD 462 patrons at a rate of 49%, but many foresee a change coming after July 1.
