The Board heard from district principals and superintendent regarding the testing window for this spring. The Board also heard from the superintendent regarding possible future roof work and how the 2nd allotment of ESSER grant funding can be spent. The additional funding could help the district especially since the evidence based funding model has not provided any increase for the last 3 years. By law that was passed in 2017 EBF should have provided around $600,000 in additional funding to the district for programs. This could help with that shortfall.
