The state's deputy education commissioner for finance tells a legislative panel that increased reporting requirements continue to trouble for Kansas school districts.

Dale Dennis told members of the Legislative Education Planning Commission on Thursday that districts are spending more time filling out forms to comply with state and federal requirements, such as basic budgeting and assistance programs.

Dennis also gave an update on how school districts are using reserve accounts by districts to offset this year's $232 per-student cut in state aid to schools.

Reserve funds are set aside for emergencies, but districts are tapping into them for such routine expenses as salaries, utilities and supplies.
