Local district sees spike in state aid

The Department of Public Instruction released estimates for general aid to area districts, and Southern Door is projected to see a 43 percent rise compared to last year. Superintendent Patti Vickman says it is the second year of steep increases. In April 2017, Southern Door lost a referendum and was excluded from a new, higher spending cap approved by then Governor Scott Walker. The district had to bring the measure to voters again where it passed. Qualifying for the spending cap increase doesn’t mean the budget for the district goes up. It changes where funding comes from, though. Additional state aid means lower local tax rates for residents of Southern Door.
