Kanawha County School District Wrestles with Funding "What Ifs"

State leaders have forecast trouble in the coming years for local school districts because of things like inflation and federal funding cuts. That could have an impact on school programs like athletics and art. A meeting of Kanawha County school officials last night talked about potential fixes, including doing away with the cap on the excess levy that voters approved in May, but that could lead to property taxes going up. There was no decision last night, and the issue will come up again at a March meeting.
