The district was informed this week that we will be receiving an infusion of $395,372 as part of the federal government's "Education Jobs" stabilization legislation. This is good news. The Board of Education will discuss how this money will be spent. The guidelines provide that school districts can spread out the expenditure over the course of this school year and next school year.
Areas of greatest need will be the focus. This determination will be made by examining student performance measures at the individual schools/grades and the recent history of achieving the federal government's annual measure of "Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)."
Again -- good news. We will be able to support students better as we work to have them meet with success on all fronts.
