How would you like to see your school district spend the extra funding they got from the state? 

This year, the Legislature’s approval of Gov. Janet Mills’ proposal to add $187 million for K-12 education to the new two-year state budget meant that the state will be funding schools at 55% for the first time since it was mandated by a statewide ballot question in 2004. It also means local school districts are getting more money than was initially anticipated in their budgets. Now that they have the extra cash, what would you like to see them do with it? Tell us in the comments below.
