Wichita schools get $3 million more for repairs

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The Wichita school board has approved $3 million more to repair buildings damaged by storms that hit the city May 19.

The money approved Monday comes on top of $2 million in funding for repairs the board already approved at its June 10 meeting. School officials say all but about $250,000 should be reimbursed by the district’s insurance.

District officials say rain, hail and wind damaged more than a dozen school sites, including major damage at Brooks Middle School.

The school board also approved $225,000 in funding for repairs at Wilbur Middle School, which was damaged by a storm on June 27.
