Reynolds signs transportation funding/student equity bill


Gov. Kim Reynolds was joined by lawmakers and education advocates today when she signed Senate File 2164, an education funding bill designed to help schools with transportation funding and per-pupil student equity. Transportation equity was first funded in fiscal 2019 to help absorb transportation costs associated with students traveling across rural communities. S.F. 2164 provides more than $7.2 million in new funding for the 204 school districts with transportation costs above the statewide average of $347.65 per pupil and provides $5.9 million for per pupil spending equity. “This legislation will help Iowa’s many rural school districts absorb transportation costs and put more money into the classroom,” Reynolds said in a statement. “Education is always a top priority, and we will continue to look for ways to provide every school, educator, and student with the tools for success.”
