Wyoming School Funding May Cost More

Cheyenne, WY – A new report suggests a proposal for regional and small school adjustments may cost an additional 38 million dollars. The adjustments would be in addition to the base cost of 719 million dollars to finance the state's 48 school districts in the 2005-2006 school year. Natrona county is the biggest winner under the new estimates, gaining nearly seven million dollars more in funding. Teton county is among four districts that would lose money. Albany County District One, Fremont County District 38 and Sublette County District One also would get less funding under the new figures from the Legislative Service Office.
