State Board of Education Budget Request Includes Greater Funding for Alt Ed

The State Board of Education passed its budget request for the coming year.  This is the formal request that the Board makes to the Legislature.  Of course, a lot happens between the Board's request and the final state budget....but there is good news!

The State Board is requesting an increase of $3.6 million for Alternative Education programs -- and ALL of that new money is to go to the schools.  You can see the Budget Request here.

I would bet that there will be an update on the funding request at the next regional meeting.  The next regional meeting should be a virtual meeting sometime this winter...watch for an email from the SDE's Alternative Education Listserve in a month or so.  If you aren't on the SDE's Alternative Education Listserve, just send an email to Jennifer Wilkinson and she will make sure you are added.
