    > RyanI teach in the Shawnee Mission School district and they are the
    highest paying district in Kansas - not Wichita! Also, I would
    beg to differ that Olathe is the top district! Shawnee Mission
    is getting a lot more families with poverty, but they maintain
    their high test scores. I would say Shawnee Mission and Blue
    Valley are the top districts. I have parents that left the
    Olathe district for the Shawnee Mission district. Shawnee
    Mission is dedicated to teaching ESL kids!
