DPI To Help Governor Hand Out $46,000,000 To State Schools
One-hundred-55 Wisconsin K-through-12 schools will be able to apply for part of 46-point-six million dollars of federal funding coming to the state through the CARES Act. A press release from the governor’s office says the “funding stream will help support students, teachers and parents who are navigating uncertainty” during the pandemic. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction is helping the governor’s office prioritize schools most-impacted by COVID-19. The three tribal schools in the state will receive the same per-pupil payment as the other school districts.
