School districts get overall reduction in state aid
Wisconsin school districts officially got the bad news many were expecting Thursday.
The state released the final school aid figures and most districts are getting less than a year ago. In the summer, it was estimated that one of every five school systems would get 15 percent less, the maximum allowed by law.
West Bend lost $1.6 million in state aid, and they're looking at cutting athletic programs starting next fall.
