Changes Ahead in Emporia Schools
As you know, the legislature has failed to approve a budget that will adequately provide for commitments made to the people of Kansas. The “march to zero income taxes” continues to put additional strain on the district's financial resources as increasing demands weigh on our human resources. The attacks on education and other public services have brought uncertainty and measured caution to the spirit and process of our decisions.
Summer Meals Program
The Emporia Public Schools offer free breakfast and lunch to anyone age 18 and younger this summer. Meals are served at Riverside, Village, William Allen White, Camp Alexander and Emporia Middle School.
