Which school districts will get state funds in the 2018-2019 school year?

The federal government will give states $16 billion in 2018-19 to help address school funding shortages in the wake of the Great Recession, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced Thursday.

The money will be used to cover school-related costs, including teacher salaries, teacher training and other education-related expenses, including for special education teachers.

DeVos said she hopes states will use it to increase the number of students who attend school.

DeVos said the funds will be distributed in three categories, each with a specific amount of money to allocate to each school district.

She also said that $15 billion of the $16.2 billion will go to states for districts with a population of 2.5 million or more.

The money is slated to be used for “further enhancements to the federal workforce, and to provide support for education programs in underserved communities.”

States have already pledged $1.3 billion for the next school year.

That’s about 4% of the total budget.

“We have a long way to go to provide students and parents with the best possible education and access to it,” DeVos said.

But while funding is still in flux, some states have already shown signs of success, including Texas, where state schools were operating more smoothly than in the past two years, according to a report from the Texas Education Agency.

According to the report, the state’s statewide education system improved by 6.8 percentage points in 2017 and 2018, compared to 2016, the most recent year available.

However, it noted that there were still challenges, including an increase in the number and quality of students, which prompted the state to seek a federal waiver that requires the district to spend 10% of its budgets on special education and teacher salaries.

States that have been successful in meeting this requirement include New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maine, Minnesota, Ohio and Kentucky.

The federal aid will be targeted to school districts that are currently underfunded, with states that have increased funding in recent years expected to receive more money.

The funding will help support schools across the country, and will help states provide for the needs of teachers, administrators, principals and students.
