Grafton, Northern Ozaukee top county list of hardest hit by state reductions that could result in tax hikes, pared spending

    Most school districts in Ozaukee County are expected to receive less general state aid for the 2013-14 school year — a potential blow to some school systems that could result in higher local property taxes and spending cuts, local administrators said.

    According to the aid estimates released last week by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, local districts are among the majority of school systems throughout the state that are expected to lose as much as 15% of their general state aid despite a 1.1% increase in the total amount of aid to be distributed by the state.

    Hardest hit in Ozaukee County could be the Grafton School District, which is expected to see its general aid cut by 11.8%, a loss of $657,312.

    The Northern Ozaukee School District also faces a significant decrease — 11.1%. That would result in a $318,536 aid reduction for the Fredonia school system.
