TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas State Board of Education members will open discussions next week about pushing for more state funding for public schools.

The agenda for Tuesday's meeting includes a review of proposals for increased state aid and more money for professional development and school lunch programs in the fiscal year that starts in July 2014.

One proposal would raise the state's base aid to school districts by $640 per student, or by almost 17 percent. The current figure for the next fiscal year is $3,852 per student.

The board will make budget recommendations to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback later this year and lobby legislators next year.

A lawsuit over education funding is currently pending before the Kansas Supreme Court.
