We Need Your Help to Contact Legislators
Let Our Minnesota Legislators Know:
It is fundamentally wrong for school districts that take care of students with the most needs to have less general education funds to pay for programs for all students.
Due to the inequities in special education funding, school districts such as Barnum Public Schools that do a great job with special education, are forced to do more with less for all students in the district.
In 2015, Barnum Public Schools was taking $427 per student ($336,361.00 total) from our general education funding to pay for mandated special education costs. In 2018, those cross-subsidy expenses were $661 per general education student ($486,191.00 total). 2019 information is not yet available. We need your help to get this corrected.
Cuts are imminent in future budgets if something is not done.
