CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - Some local schools receive a boost in funding.

Governor Matt Blunt signed the education budget during a visit to Cape Girardeau Central High School.

Blunt stressed the importance of math, engineering, technology, and science learning.

The money will help pay for a portion of the test fee for advanced placement math and science exams.

Some of the money will go toward virtual classrooms to teach science and math in smaller districts that don't offer the courses.

Below are school funding numbers for some Heartland schools.
