If signed into law, the state’s Education Cost Sharing Grant, which supports all local and regional school districts, would be fully funded beginning in 2024-25. That means more than $275 million would be invested across 164 public school districts in the state.
Waterbury would receive the highest amount with an additional $24.8 million. This fiscal year’s grant is worth $157.2 million.
