Wisconsin school districts are waiting to see how state government leaders solve the budget deficit.

A shortfall of more than $5 billion over the two-year period is being projected.

One western Wisconsin school district, River Falls, is projecting a 2 percent increase in state funding. That's less than normal, but they have no way to know if it's accurate.

Rep. Kitty Rhoades, R-Hudson, says she doesn't expect a decrease in K-12 funding, despite Wisconsin's money problems.

She says the governor has always said public school funding is one of his priorities.

The problem for school leaders remains the same. They have to draw up a spending plan for their districts without knowing how much money they're going to get from a main source of revenue.
