MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin's state superintendent Tony Evers is proposing a $615 million increase in state aid for the state's schools at the same time he wants to redo the formula used to determine how much money each district gets.
Evers released his latest plan for redoing the state aid formula on Monday.
His proposal would have to be approved by the Republican-controlled Legislature and Governor Scott Walker before it would take effect.
Spokesmen for Walker and Republican legislative leaders did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
Evers' plan calls for increasing aid to schools by 2.4 percent in the first year of the budget and 5.5 percent in the second year. No school would lose aid under his plan.
