PHOENIX (AP) — Some Arizona school districts may require budget cuts after a grant program promised by Gov. Doug Ducey in June underdelivered.
Ducey's office had stated the $370 million grants would "guarantee" schools receive funding at a rate based roughly on enrollment.
But applications sent in November stated that the grant would instead be ``up to'' the formula amount.
Tucson's school district received $4.5 million less than it expected.
Chandler's school district received about $1.5 million less than expected.
A Ducey spokesperson said the June grant was based on expected enrollment data at the time and that it was just a portion of the roughly $950 million in additional funding schools were allotted.
