Legislature Discussing Funding Options for Neb. Grade Schools

Posted: Updated:

Members of the legislature's education committee are weighing different funding options for Nebraska's grade schools.

The committee is studying the funding formula that determines state aid for schools. The subject of state aid for schools has led to recent conflicts between smaller and larger districts.

Lawmakers may consider letting school districts impose a local sales tax which would let them fill more of their own needs.

Current law lets districts generate revenue through property taxes.
