Gov. Sam Brownback's administration will release the details of his plan for overhauling how Kansas finances its public schools this week.

The governor's office says the details will be made public Wednesday, during a presentation by Policy Director Landon Fulmer to the State Board of Education.

The administration promises none of the state's 283 school districts will see their aid from the state decrease during the next school year.

But Kansas Association of School Boards lobbyist Mark Tallman says officials remain skeptical because they haven't seen enough details to know how the plan will affect their individual school districts.

Fulmer has already said the plan will eliminate state limits on local property taxes that supplement more than $3 billion in annual state aid.
