MADISON, Wis. -

Wisconsin's state superintendent Tony Evers is proposing a $615 million increase in state aid for the state's schools at the same time he wants to redo the formula used to determine how much money each district gets.

Evers released his latest plan for redoing the state aid formula on Monday.

His proposal would have to be approved by the Republican-controlled Legislature and Gov. Scott Walker before it would take effect.

Evers' plan calls for increasing aid to schools by 2.4 percent in the first year of the budget and 5.5 percent in the second year. No school would lose aid under his plan.

He is also proposing seven new state aids targeting specific issues, such as grants to help districts with low graduation rates.
