  • Evaluating Disbursements for the Tax Credit for Low Income Students Scholarship Program
  • Trends in Social Workers Employed by School Districts

The committee discussed and selected audit proposals before them to be completed during the coming months by the Legislative Post Audit Division. Following audit staff overviews of each possible item, the committee agreed to move forward with the following audits:

  • Groundwater districts in Kansas

  • Community colleges athletics programs and scholarship funding
  • Permanent work from home options for state employees
  • Inefficiencies in the child support collection system
