KENOSHA, WI–More money will be coming to area school districts next year. Kenosha Unified Schools will see an increase of nearly 253-thousand dollars, up point .17% from the previous school year.
Total aid to KUSD is now over 150-million dollars for the 2019-20 school year. Silver Lake, Wheatland, and Trevor Wilmot will also see rather large increases in funding under the state budget signed by Governor Tony Evers last week. Other districts will see a decrease but most especially Paris which is down almost 15 percent.
All numbers are preliminary and will be certified in October. Evers raised funding for public schools through his partial veto power, moving funds from the Milwaukee School Choice program to other districts, to the tune of nearly 84 million dollars.
State aid is calculated by a number of factors, including property value in a given district, enrollment, and other shared costs.
