School districts in Kansas will no longer be able to use Medicaid to pay for special-education assistants in schools under a federal law set to take effect July 1. The law requires states to pay for aides in all settings if they pay for them in schools, forcing Kansas to discontinue the subsidy or face spending up to an additional $10 million on the services. One district's special-education director said its services will continue while officials work to find alternative sources of funding.
