HARRISBURG — The Wolf administration announced Monday how education money from the new partial state budget would be distributed, and school districts could begin receiving it as early as today.
School districts will receive, as a base, a sum equivalent to their first six months of funding from last year, said Jeffrey Sheridan, spokesman for Gov. Tom Wolf. The Democratic governor last week signed into law $23.39 billion worth of state spending, reducing through line-item vetoes the remainder of what had been a $30.26 billion Republican-crafted budget.
