DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC)- The Delaware Department of Education wants to keep agency spending at the same level as last year but increase spending at the school district level.

Education Secretary Mark Murphy has requested funding for district expenditures on technologies, early childhood initiatives and college credit programs for high school students.

The request includes $2.6 million for new computers and nearly $6 million for new jobs to support technology in districts.

Overall state spending for all public schools would be about $1.23 billion under the proposal, up about 5 percent from the current $1.16 billion. But most of the increase comes from school funding allotments based on enrollment.

Office of Management and Budget Director Ann Visalli said the state's fiscal forecast might not support all education spending requests.
