Smaller Door County schools lose under current state aid system

While the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction is increasing state aid to local school districts this year, two smaller Door County communities will get less money.  Gibraltar Area Schools will receive just over $450 less than last year.  The Sevastopol School District, on the other hand, will see it's share of state school aid drop by nearly $12,000.  Sevastopol School Superintendent Kyle Luedtke says the current state funding is based on property values and that leaves Sevastopol and Gibraltar taxpayers to make up the difference.



Luedtke says Sevastopol's budget is readjusted after the amount of state aid coming in is known for certain.
