Washington County schools would get nearly $1 million in additional state funding under a plan by state School Superintendent Nancy Grasmick to equalize aid to school districts.
The money was included in a $46 million package unveiled Wednesday in Annapolis.
The plan, which would give $943,691 to Washington County, was presented to a task force studying school funding, said House Speaker Casper Taylor, D-Allegany.
Local members of the Washington County Board of Education have asked for more money to equalize the amount of state funds going to different counties.
