TOPEKA — The state has delayed half of what it owes to public school districts for a few days because of concerns about a short-term cash shortfall. Deputy state budget director Elaine Frisbie said Tuesday afternoon the state is holding $98 million in state school aid payments that would have reached school districts Monday. The school districts won’t get the money until the end of the week. The state’s tax collections in December were about $22 million short of expectations, she said.
