Dayton At Superintendent Conference 06 Aug 13

Governor Dayton is going before an audience of Minnesota school leaders ahead of an academic year in which districts can expect more money from the state. Dayton’s appearance at a school superintendent conference today (TUE) will offer a chance to recap the education funding boost in the new state budget. More than $485-million in new money over the next two years is bound for public schools and early childhood programs. All schools will see an increase in their per-pupil aid both years. And beginning in the 2014-2015 school year, every district that wants to offer all-day kindergarten will get state aid to cover those costs.
