A group representing 72 Kansas school districts says it will sue state officials over education funding issues later this year.

Schools for Fair Funding sent notice to the Legislature on
Thursday saying it will file suit in October in Shawnee County
District Court.

The decision isn't a surprise. The member districts had voted in February to go ahead with a lawsuit after the Kansas Supreme Court refused to reopen a previous school finance case.

Schools for Fair Funding lawyer John Robb said members waited for legislators to end their 2010 session before sending the notice. By law, the notice must be sent to lawmakers at least four months ahead of the lawsuit.

Robb said lawmakers avoided cuts in education funding this year but didn't restore reductions made last year.
