School districts across Kentucky say when it comes to state budget cuts, enough is enough.

The Kentucky School Board Association came up with a funding resolution earlier this year
and it's getting a lot of attention.

The plan asks lawmakers to put school district's funding levels back to what they were in 2008, asking for 120 million dollars more.

For the past few years the state has dished out 60 million dollars a year to Kentucky's 173 school districts.

But as  the KSBA says as districts grow, the money is being spread thinner and thinner.

Education Commissioner Dr. Terry Holliday says it's time for Kentucky to step up.

Holliday says the KSBA will present this resolution to state lawmakers when the next legislative session begins in January.
