An Analysis of the Proposal to Reduce Revenue Limits for Wisconsin School Districts

If the Wisconsin governor's budget includes a mandated reduction of $500 per pupil in the sum of general aid received from the state and local property tax revenue, school districts would see an aggregate 7 percent reduction in allowable revenues relative to the 2010-11 revenue limit. In general, the districts with higher property values would face smaller percentage reductions in the revenue limits.
