WICHITA, Kansas – Superintendent John Allison will meet with more than 100 high school students to ask for their opinions on some of the proposed budget cuts during his Spring Superintendent Student Dialogue Session on Wednesday, March 30, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., at the School Service Center, 3850 N. Hydraulic.

The students represent every WPS high school and eSchool.

Superintendent Allison will talk with students about the district’s current budget situation and the list of potential budget cuts the Board of Education is reviewing.

The students will break into small groups to share their feedback on what they value most, what programs allow them to achieve success and to make suggestions about the budget cuts. At the end of the session, the students will come back together and share their opinions with the entire group.

The students will have the opportunity to ask Superintendent Allison questions on any topic.

“It’s important to hear from the students because the budget decisions the Board of Education make will directly have an impact on them,” Superintendent Allison said. “The students are very insightful. They may come up with some helpful suggestions as the Board looks at potential cuts.”

The students involved in the Superintendent Dialogue Session are members of the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council.
