|STURGEON BAY – Governor Scott Walker traveled to Sturgeon Bay today to discuss the historic K-12 and rural school investments included in his biennial budget proposal with Sevastopol School District students, teachers, and staff. The governor’s proposal 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 today in the Sevastopol School District to discuss the positive impact our K-12 budget proposal will have on the community,” Governor Walker said. “I even had the chance to meet with the Sevastopol Destination Imagination Team, which took the initiative to develop Project Outreach, a free school store serving underprivileged kids. These students are working to make their school a better place to learn and their communities a better place to live. They, and their fellow students throughout the state, are the future of Wisconsin. Our budget proposal works to provide them with the best education possible by putting $11.5 billion into K-12 education.”

The Sevastopol 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.
