Governor Scott Walker visited Sevastopol School Tuesday morning to discuss his education budget proposal along with seeing the work students have been working on in recent weeks. Following a presentation commending Sevastopol’s Destination Imagination teams, Gov. Walker took in a pair of skits and puppet shows before meeting with the school’s valedictorians and peer mentoring group. Gov. Walker says seeing the great work going on at Sevastopol School is part of the reason why he is pleased to put more dollars into K-12 education in the budget.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, per-pupil spending would rise from $250 currently to $654 for the 2018-2019 school year with additional money coming from additional sparsity aid to qualifying rural school districts like Sevastopol.
