A task force created by Gov. Sam Brownback to review the Kansas system for funding public schools is holding its final meeting.

The group is meeting Monday in Topeka. It was formed by the Republican governor to look at how funds are spent by school districts and identify areas for improving fiscal efficiency.

Brownback has said school districts should focus more of their resources on classroom instruction and find ways to reduce spending on functions that don't affect teaching. Some ideas that have been discussed are sharing administrative resources and purchasing power.

Kansas spends more than $3 billion in state revenues on K-12 learning each year.

The task force is expected to make recommendations to the governor to consider in the next legislative session.
