Approved Portion Of State Budget Could Bring Additional Per-Student Funding

Michigan lawmakers approved a portion of the state budget which could mean more money for students in Michigan.

On Thursday, a legislative conference committee approved a plan that would mean an additional $60 to $120 in per-student state funding.

Lower-funded districts would also see more money.

The overall budget would increase school aid by one percent.

Increasing the school aid budget for at-risk students was one of Governor Snyder’s requests.
