WI Schools Set for State Aid

Many schools across Wisconsin will be getting less money from the state in the new school year.

The state’s Department of Public Instruction released its state aid estimates for the next school year yesterday. DPI says 57 percent of schools will see more money, while 30 percent of schools will see less. That includes 64 school districts that will see their state funding drop the state-maximum 15 percent. DPI says the changes are a result of both more money from the state, and the shift in how the state pays for choice schools in Milwaukee. Milwaukee Public Schools are one of the biggest losers for next year.

DPI says MPS will lose 43 million-dollars because it was overpaid in the past.
