School safety grants dominate list of most viewed posts in 2018

As we move into 2019, we decided to take a look back at the ten most viewed posts here at the Legislative Update blog in 2018.  One of the biggest stories was the creation of the school safety grants administered by the Office of School Safety at the Wisconsin Department of Justice and that is reflected here as six of the top ten were on that topic.

What will be the top posts of 2019?  Only time will tell, but a good bet is the 2019-21 state budget debate that is already beginning. Thanks for reading and we look forward to keeping our readers up to date on important K-12 legislative happenings in 2019!
