MADISON (AP) — The majority of Wisconsin public school districts will see less money in state aid this year.

The state Department of Public Instruction said Monday that 64 percent of districts, or 272 out of 424, will get less money than they did last school year.

Even though state aid increased by about $32 million, the amount public schools will get will decrease over the prior year after about $158 million is directed toward private school choice programs in Milwaukee and Racine.

The nearly $4.3 billion spent on school aid this year is down more than 7 percent from what schools received two years ago.

Each year, the state is required to notify district by Oct. 15 with an estimate of how much state aid they will receive for that year.
