Midstate school districts, like all 500 districts in the state, will receive a modest increase in their state support for basic district operations under the 2013-14 state budget that Gov. Tom Corbett signed into law on Sunday.
It provides for an increase in basic education funding — support for school districts’ basic operations — of $129.8 million, for a total of $5.5 billion, or 2.5 percent. That’s according to Erik Arneson, spokesman for Senate Republicans, who released the estimates of basic education funding that will go to each district. The figures includes some extra aid for fast-growing and financially distressed districts.
Education spending will consume 41 cents of every dollar taxpayers send to the state. The following shows how much the bulk of that money will be returned to your school district.
