School districts finally know what they will have to work with as the finish budget over the next two weeks.

State lawmakers reached agreement on a budget early Saturday morning, which boosts school aid $1.1 billion and increases the state's core education funding formula - foundation aid - by $700 million.

Under the deal, districts will see at least a 2.7 percent increase in foundation aid and as much as a 10 percent increase, which should shut down talk of many of the cuts superintendents have threatened as lawmakers struggled to close the deal.
