State Aid For FDL School District Down

The Fond du Lac School District will receive $1.6 million less in General State Aid this school year while North Fond du Lac will receive nearly $500,000 ($486,419) more. The now certified figures will allow public school districts to finalize their budgets, which will happen next Monday for the Fond du Lac School District. The North Fond du Lac School Board will also approve their budget and tax levy next week. North Fond du Lac Schools Superintendent Aaron Sadoff says an enrollment increase of 60 students will help them out. He says they feel really good about the financial strength of the district.  Fond du Lac Director of Business Services Wendy Brockert says they were hurt by a couple of factors. She says they had less students enrolled last year and their property valuation went up. Oakfield received nearly $9,000 more ($8,956), Campbellsport over $350,000 more ($353,062). Ripon will receive $126,239 more, Rosendale-Brandon $55,668 more and the Waupun School District will see a cut of $305,485. To find out how other districts made out click here
