facebook  twitter 

Passed 20 to 16 in the Senate on May 31, 2012, the House-Senate conference report for the school aid budget for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1, 2012. This would appropriate $12.944 billion, compared to $12.659 billion authorized the previous year. The bill would increase the per-pupil foundation grant to school districts that currently get less than average by $120, and other districts would get smaller increases based on student performance and their adoption of fiscal best practices. The identical budget is included in House Bill 5372.
