DPI says most school districts will receive less state money in 2013-14


MADISON (WKOW) - More than half of Wisconsin school districts will receive less in state general aid for the 2013-14 school year than they did in 2012-13, according to a report released by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction on Monday morning.

Overall state school aid will increase by 1.1 percent in 2013-14, but according to DPI 54 percent of all districts will actually get less money.

The numbers vary widely in south-central Wisconsin, with the Madison Metropolitan School District getting 15% less money while Verona Public Schools will receive 16 percent more.
