The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction today released information on fall student counts, school district revenue limits and general school aids for the 2021-2022 school year.

From DPI:

“Wisconsin school districts reported similar enrollments for fall 2021 as they did for fall 2020, reflecting the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The data published is unaudited and is based off enrollment counts performed on Sept. 17, 2021, the third Friday of September, and reported to the DPI.”

“The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction today posted state general school aids that school districts will receive during the current school year. The information published includes certified general school aid amounts for each school district, as well as 2021-22 student enrollment numbers for independent charter schools and private schools participating in state parental choice programs. The enrollment numbers are used to determine the dollar amounts to be deducted or withheld from school districts’ aid payments to fund state parental choice programs.

“(General) Aid varies widely by district based on the equalization formula. Of 421 districts, 272 will receive more aid than last year (65 percent); 144 will receive less (34 percent). Aid amounts for each school district can be found on the department’s School Financial Services website, both alphabetically and by percent change.”
