DALLAS — Kansas legislative negotiators reached agreement late Wednesday on a $14 billion budget for fiscal 2012 that reduces the per-pupil state aid stipend for Kansas’ 289 local school districts.

The spending plan adopts the reduction in base state aid to $3,780 per student from the current $4,012 that was recommended in January by Gov. Sam Brownback. The original House plan called for funding at $3,762 per pupil, with the Senate version setting per-pupil funding at $3,786.
