According to a WASB (Wi Association of School Boards) Gov. Scott Walker's proposed budget will reduce the per pupil revenue cap by $500 per student. For MG this would be a net reduction of $600/student from our current budget process - increasing our budget deficit for next year by $1.8M over and above our current estimated $750K deficit.
WASB's Executive Director John Ashley has also issued a letter expressing opposition to the "budget repair bill" in that it goes too far without adequate deliberation.
"We are concerned that the provisions in the budget repair bill that prohibit collective bargaining over everything but wages go far beyond helping school districts control costs."
