Common School Fund Distribution Amounts

Friday, January 5, 2024

The Common School Fund distributions for the 2023-24 school year will be $56.87 (rounded) per census student. This figure is based upon the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands’ estimate of $65 million being available for payment. Payments to districts will be made by Monday, April 29, 2024. Funds must be used in the same fiscal year as they are received or allocated as restricted fund balance (WUFAR account 10 B 936130). Access to the specific distribution amount for any district can be found on the School Financial Services Wisconsin's Common School Fund webpage.

We are grateful for the superior work of the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands, which has resulted in this significant increase in funding for our Wisconsin school libraries. Due to concerns from the field regarding the DPI Common School Fund spending guidelines, a thorough review was conducted in the spring of 2023. For a detailed summary of this process and the results, please read the Common School Fund Guideline Review Update article published in August 2023.
