72-5177. Extraordinary declining enrollment state aid; application; approval of amount; school district extraordinary declining enrollment fund. (a) Each school district may submit an application to the state board of education for approval of extraordinary declining enrollment state aid. Such application shall be submitted in such form and manner as prescribed by the state board, and shall include a description of the extraordinary decline in enrollment of the school district that is the basis for the application.

(b) The state board shall review all submitted applications and approve or deny any such application based on whether the applicant school district has demonstrated extraordinary declining enrollment since school year 2014-2015. As part of its review of an application, the state board may conduct a hearing and provide the applicant school district an opportunity to present testimony as to such school district's extraordinary declining enrollment. In reviewing the application, the state board shall consider the decrease in enrollment of the school district since school year 2014-2015.

(c) If the state board approves an application, it shall determine the amount of extraordinary declining enrollment state aid to be disbursed to the applicant school district from the school district extraordinary declining enrollment fund. In approving any application for extraordinary declining enrollment state aid, the state board may approve an amount of extraordinary declining enrollment state aid that is less than the amount the school district requested in the application. If the state board denies an application, then, within 15 days of such denial, the state board shall send written notice of such denial to the superintendent of such school district. All administrative proceedings pursuant to this section shall be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the Kansas administrative procedure act. Any action by the state board pursuant to this section shall be subject to review in accordance with the Kansas judicial review act.

(d) There is hereby established in the state treasury the school district extraordinary declining enrollment fund, which shall be administered by the state department of education. All expenditures from the school district extraordinary declining enrollment fund shall be used for the disbursement of extraordinary declining enrollment state aid as approved by the state board under this section. All expenditures from the school district extraordinary declining enrollment fund shall be made in accordance with appropriation acts upon warrants of the director of accounts and reports issued pursuant to vouchers approved by the state board of education, or the designee of the state board of education.

(e) The provisions of this section shall expire on July 1, 2018.
