Schools to Get Boost in Funding

Schools from the area have received a boost in funding for classes that are focused on career and technology education.

The director of the Area 30 Career Center, Lora Busch and assistant director Chad Nunley both provided a detailed report Thursday to its board of directors consisting of five area superintendents, to show where schools lost and gained funding.

Busch noted that several programs got a boost, but some of the “foundational classes” did not.

Busch explained that the funding is based on Additional Pupil Count. The money goes to each school corporation’s General Fund. The money is used for career and technology education courses both at Area 30 and the high schools.
