Nebraska Schools To Get More Money

The Nebraska legislature wrapped up the 2013 session by passing a budget that includes a five percent increase in state aid to education each of the next two years. That will add fifty four million dollars to the formula for the next school year. That translates somewhat differently as it trickles down to local school districts. Randy Anderson is Superintendent in the Crofton and Hartington Public districts…

Anderson says that means they have had to make selected cuts in the Crofton budget…

Anderson says they have watched their state aid decrease over the past few years…

The state aid formula is dependent on student enrollment and property valuations in each district.
