HARTLAND – Governor Scott Walker visited Hartland North Elementary School this morning to discuss the historic K-12 school investments included in his biennial budget proposal, which lifts K-12 investment to $11.5 billion over two years, an all-time high and includes $649 million in new state aids for all K-12 schools in the state.

“It’s great to be here in Hartland to discuss the positive impact our $11.5 billion investment in K-12 education will have on the students, teachers, and families in the Hartland-Lakeside School District,” Governor Walker said. “As I travel throughout the state, one of the things I hear most often is we need to make K-12 education a priority. Our budget proposal shows we’re listening, and thanks to our reforms, more of that funding is going directly into the classroom to benefit our students.”

The Hartland-Lakeside School District is estimated to receive $7.94 million in funding from the state under Governor Walker’s biennial budget, including:

  • An increase of $692,788 in Per Pupil Aid. Governor Walker’s budget proposal increases per-pupil funding by $200 per pupil in Fiscal Year 2018 and $204 per pupil in Fiscal Year 2019 – the largest increase since the 2005-2007 biennium.

The Hartland-Lakeside School District may also be eligible for further funding under Governor Walker’s budget proposal, such as mental health grants, energy efficiency incentives, and special needs grants.
