MPS Referendum

The referendum supplement includes six priority areas that will be implemented to increase equity and excellence in our schools and promote positive educational, social, and emotional outcomes for our community’s children. On April 7, 2020, the city of Milwaukee voters overwhelmingly approved, by a 78–22% margin, an operational referendum to exceed the state‐imposed revenue limit. MPS received $57 million in FY21 and will receive an additional $20 million in FY22 as part of a four-year model. MPS will receive $84 million in FY23 and $87 million in FY24 from the referendum, and this amount will stay in place.

Proposed Emergency Education Relief Fund Supplement

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 [P.L. 116–260], also referred to as the federal stimulus package, was enacted on December 27, 2020, and is the federal government’s response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The stimulus package provides for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund. The ESSER II has become available and districts may start applying and budgeting for these funds. Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) has been allocated $225 million. School districts have until September 30, 2023, to obligate ESSER II funds. Between March of 2020 and 2021, Congress passed three stimulus bills under ESSER with allocations of funding for school districts. These funds provide emergency financial assistance to address the impact that COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, on elementary and secondary schools. The following table summarizes those allocations, the amount of funding that is or will be allocated to MPS and the performance period.
