How would you like your school district to spend the extra funding it got from the state?
This year, the Legislative Assembly’s approval of Gov. Janet Mills’ proposal add $ 187 million for kindergarten to grade 12 education to the new two-year state budget meant that the state would fund schools at 55% for the first time since it was mandated by a statewide vote in 2004. It also means that local school districts are receiving more money than originally budgeted for. Now that they have the extra money, what would you like them to do with it?
