More Fed Money for Local Schools
Tuesday, 07 September 2010

September 7--  You may remember when Congress was called back to Washington in late Summer to approve $64 billion to help save teacher and public safety jobs.

The money has been divided up among states and local school systems in Georgia have been advised of the amounts they can expect to receive this fiscal year.

Toombs County School Superintendent Dr. Kendall Brantley reports the Toombs County school system will receive $586,023 dollars.  He and other school superintendents we contacted say the money will replace other funds which will be rolled over to fiscal year 2012, a year when little additional federal funds are expected.

According to a draft allocation advisory from the Georgia Department of Education, Vidalia City Schools will receive an additional $442,755, Montgomery County has been allocated $223,943, Treutlen County $220,959, Wheeler County $188,576 and Tattnall County $680,506.  Officials say the allocations are based on student enrollment.
