The Honorable Molly Baumgardner, Chairperson
Senate Committee on Education
300 SW 10th Avenue, Room 144-S
Topeka, Kansas 66612
Dear Senator Baumgardner:
SUBJECT: Fiscal Note for SB 184 by Senator Holscher
In accordance with KSA 75-3715a, the following fiscal note concerning SB 184 is
respectfully submitted to your committee.
SB 184 would require each nonpublic school in Kansas to administer the statewide
assessments provided by the State Board of Education. However, the bill would exclude home
schools or home school organizations and community consortiums or groups from this
requirement. The bill would require the publication of performance and accountability reports, as
well as longitudinal achievement reports of the nonpublic schools on the Department of
Education’s website.
According to the Department of Education, the fiscal effect from the enactment of the bill
cannot be estimated. Nonaccredited private schools do not currently report student data to the
agency. The agency would need to provide training and technical assistance for each of the
nonaccredited private schools for collecting and reporting the necessary data. In addition, some
of the nonaccredited private schools likely do not have student data management systems
necessary to collect student data at the level required for the reporting. Adding this capability
would require additional expenditures for the nonaccredited private schools, as well as for the
Department for training these schools; however, a fiscal effect cannot be estimated as the agency
does not know the number of nonaccredited private schools or the schools’ reporting capabilities.
Any fiscal effect associated with SB 184 is not reflected in The FY 2024 Governor’s Budget
