SASD to get more state aid, tax relief from state

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - The Sheboygan Area School District will get additional funding from the state next school year and some relief for district taxpayers.

uperintendent Joe Sheehan said during last night’s school board meeting that the district will get around one million dollars more in state aid when compared to last school year, based on the new state budget.

Also, a recent state Department of Public Instruction estimate showed the district will get additional state support.  When on Sheboygan’s Morning News, Sheehan said this is due to the ratio of student body size and area property values being below the sate average.  Thus, the district will get around an additional three million dollars.  The money will go towards lowering the district’s tax levy, which will result in a lower mill rate.  How much of a decrease will be determined by October.
