Some Door County school superintendents are giving high marks to the recommendations from the bi-partisan Blue Ribbon Commission on school funding. The commission report addresses specific areas such as mental health, special needs and bilingual services and aiding districts with declining enrollments. Sturgeon Bay School District Superintendent Dan Tjernagel likes the idea that lawmakers are taking notice of the funding challenges facing school districts.
Sevastopol School District Superintendent Kyle Luedtke says such recommendation would help his district address some growing pains and the English Language Learner program.
The recommendations of the Blue Ribbon Commission are expected to aid in the crafting of Wisconsin's 2019 education budget.
