Big budget news for charter schools
The budget includes big news for charter schools. For instance, it holds public school units harmless for drops in 2021-22 enrollment. A press release from Senator Berger outlines additional budget highlights, which include:
“A 5% pay raise for most state employees and an average 5% pay raise for teachers over the biennium.
A $2,800 bonus to most teachers using federal funds.
[An] additional $1.5 billion above the base budget over the biennium in recurring funds for K-12 education.”
Be on the lookout for an invitation to a Legislative Update from the Coalition’s Government Relations Team.
