Dodge County School Districts Receiving Share Of New State Funding

(Beaver Dam) Wisconsin’s K-12 schools are getting millions of dollars in new funding, including school districts in Dodge County. After the most recent budget deliberations, Governor Tony Evers promised more money for Wisconsin schools. Thursday, he announced he’s using $110-million-dollars from federal coronavirus relief funds for education. Beaver Dam is slated to get $448-thousand-dollars, Cambria-Friesland $48-thousand, Columbus is set to receive $164-thousand-dollars, with Horicon receiving $108-thousand, Lomira will get $138-thousand, Randolph is in line for $66-thousand, Watertown $479-thousand, Waupun $272-thousand-dollars, Hustisford $50-thousand, and Mayville $137-thousand. Evers says Wisconsin’s kids and schools have faced unprecedented challenges during the pandemic from distance learning to reducing class sizes. He says these funds are an opportunity for schools to invest directly into programming to help students both in and out of the classroom. The total funding from the governor amounts to $133 per student. Every school district in Wisconsin is in line to get a share of the money.
