MPS Passes Balanced Budget
Interim Superintendent Keith Posley will focus on increasing enrollment.
Interim Superintendent Keith Posley avoided almost $12 million in school cuts by proposing a restructuring of its administrative offices.
“That is basically roughly around $147 per student, so there’s a great impact, there’s a number of things that can be done with that amount of money,” Posley said. “We can restore teachers to classrooms, (paraprofessionals) back to classrooms, supplies.”
Still, Posley’s focus this summer will be on increasing enrollment.
“Recruiting students and telling our wonderful story of the Milwaukee Public Schools and all that it has to offer,” he said. “That is the one way that we know that we will be able to increase the market share.”
On Wednesday, a spokeswoman for Walker said the governor looks forward to working with Posley to make sure children have access to a great education.
