Media Advisory: Gov. Evers to Visit Schools in Hayward and Holmen to Highlight Budget Recommendations to Provide Largest Funding Increase for K-12 Schools in State History
MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers will tomorrow, Mon., March 13, 2023, visit Hayward and Holmen to highlight his plans to invest more than $2.6 billion in K-12 schools—the largest increase in funding for K-12 schools in state history—including targeted investments to improve reading and literacy, support school-based mental health services, provide universal school meals, and bolster the educator pipeline to help keep class sizes small. As announced in his 2023-25 Biennial Budget Message, Gov. Evers’ budget proposal provides the second largest proposed direct investment in state general aids since the 1995-97 biennium, the largest per pupil adjustments since revenue limits were imposed, and a historic investment in special education.

Gov. Evers will tour Hayward Intermediate School in Hayward at 11:45 a.m. During the tour, the governor will speak with school leaders, staff, and students. Following this, the governor will tour Holmen High School in Holmen at 2:15 p.m. and hear about the school district’s Student Universal Nutrition Program, which finds solutions and educates students on the importance of healthy eating habits. The governor’s budget includes $120 million for his “Healthy Meals, Healthy Kids” initiative to provide universal school breakfast and lunch to help prevent kids from being hungry at school and ensure students can come to class coursework ready.

Attendees must follow all local public health and updated CDC guidance to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including, as appropriate, mask wearing and social distancing.
