Bond dollars

Why can't bond dollars be used to pay for operating expenses?

Bond money cannot be used toward operating expenses, such as salaries. Bond funds, according to Kansas statute, can only be used on capital projects such as building construction and maintenance projects. That means that any money raised through an approved bond issue cannot be used to pay for additional teachers or to lower class sizes. However, the money is used to create better learning environments for students in the district.
