At the recent Wisconsin Department of Health Services media briefing, Governor Tony Evers (D) announced an additional $250 million spending cut across state agencies for this fiscal year. "This is a proactive step that will put our state in a stronger position to weather revenue impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic while also insuring that critical services remain accessible for Wisconsinites," Gov. Evers said. Evers also announced that 155 local education agencies are eligible to apply for the $46 million provided to Wisconsin through the Governor's Emergency Education Relief fund which was established under the CARES Act. The funding will go to the most significantly impacted K-12 schools based on economic disadvantage, access to technology and internet, and student scores on the English Language Arts student assessment. "These important funds will help support students, educators, and parents who are navigating this uncertainty by insuring schools across Wisconsin have the additional resources they need as they make decisions about how students will learn in the upcoming school year and beyond."
