Under the compromise S.F. 455 version, $2.8 million was set aside to increase the per-pupil allocation by $5 per student in 161 districts, including Davenport. In those districts, there is up to $175 per pupil inequity in the funding. Meanwhile, the bill also provides that 140 of the state’s 333 school districts will get a share of the $11.2 million to deal with transportation funding inequities. Transportation costs run as high as $970 per pupil per year at North Winneshiek.
