Summary of Title VIII
Title VIII describes the provisions and formula for federal assistance for certain local education agencies impacted by federal property acquisition. The purpose is to compensate Wisconsin School Districts for property that cannot be taxed due to federal property status. This includes National Forest Land, Military Reservations, and Native American Tribal Trust Land. Eligible LEA's apply directly to the U.S. Department of Education for funding. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction cooperates in the implementation of this federal program and verifies Wisconsin school district data.
