Madison Public Schools earmarked to get $940,143 for next school year.
The Madison Public Schools will receive an increase in state funding for the second straight year after seeing aid reduced to zero in 2010. According to numbers released by the state on Thursday, the school district will receive $940,143 for the 2012-13 school year. That is an increase of 241,450 from the $698,693 given to the district for this school year. The funding figures come two years after Gov. Chris Christie's administration announced on St. Patrick's day of 2010 that the district had its funding reduced to zero. The aid represents a 34.6 percent increase from this school year's funding. Of the total amount, $853,323 is marked as special education aid.
