ABOUT SENATE BILL 40
A component of Kansas Senate Bill 40 (SB 40) gives local boards of education sole authority to take actions in response to the COVID-19 state of disaster emergency related to school closures, learning modes and COVID-19 mitigation efforts. The legislation also provides that employees, students, and parents or guardians of students who are unhappy with the COVID-19 interventions in place may request a hearing. If the complainants are dissatisfied with the hearing decision, those individuals can file a civil action in the district court within 30 days of the decision. The court shall conduct a hearing within 72 hours after receipt and issue an order on such petition within seven days after the hearing is conducted.
