03/16/2018–Governor Walker discussed his school safety initiative when he visited Gillett schools yesterday. He also highlight the positive effect that increased Sparsity Aid will have on Wisconsin’s rural school districts. Earlier this week, Governor Walker signed Assembly Bill 835 into law which provides additional aid to rural school districts. This investment comes on top of the historic $11.5 billion investment for K-12 education included in the state budget.
The bill signed into law by Governor Walker on Monday in Muscoda helps low-population school districts by modifying the sparsity categorical aid program for school districts and the revenue limit ceiling for school districts.
