JFC objection withdrawn: private school-related costs will be included in data portal

by | Sep 19, 2023 | Legislative Update Blog, State Issue

The anonymous legislator or legislators on the Joint Finance Committee have withdrawn their objection to moving forward with a public school financial data portal being developed by the Department of Public Instruction. The WASB views this as a positive development that should allow the process of developing the portal to continue based on recommendations from a bipartisan advisory committee.

See previous WASB release and blog post on the topic.

The objection to the proposal came after the “Wisconsin Coalition for Education Freedom” submitted negative feedback due to the inclusion of public school district costs related to private schools.

Act 89 in 2021 requires DPI to create a new online dashboard to provide public school district finances in a more user-friendly and transparent format for the public.
