West Allis schools get $2 million boost from feds

Sept. 2, 2010

The West Allis-West Milwaukee School District expects to receive $2.1 million from a federal jobs bill and it will use it to help fund the 2011-12 budget.

The money is part of the federal Education Jobs Fund, designed to save teacher jobs. Districts must spend the money by September 2012.

West Allis-West Milwaukee anticipates a $6 million shortfall in the 2011-12 school year, so administrators decided to spend the money then.

"This will go a long way in saving jobs and maintaining programs," Business Director Deb Rouse said.
