Several Northern Michigan Schools Receive Additional State Funding

It’s a big day for thousands of students across Michigan.

They’ll be zipping up backpacks and sharpening pencils for the first day of school!

Some Northern Michigan schools are receiving more state money this year than ever before.

Gaylord Community Schools is among 20 schools receiving additional funding this year.

Their grand total is just over $660,000 from the state.

To break that down, the base per student price is $60.

However, schools in more rural areas of Northern Michigan are receiving “2X funding,” doubling that to $120.
