WATERLOO — A state application to fund programs serving returning dropouts and students at risk of dropping out will come before the Board of Education on Monday.
The board meets at 5 p.m. in the Education Service Center, 1516 Washington St.
Waterloo Community Schools officials have proposed a $5.32 million budget for 14 programs during 2018-19. The budget includes modified supplemental aid dollars the district is seeking through the School Budget Review Committee plus a required general fund match and estimated supplemental funding from the state.
Money would go toward credit recovery and after-school programs, the alternative learning center and a number of intensive guidance and support programs.
In other business, the board will accept a $7,910 donation from the R.J. McElroy Trust for youth emergency funding at nine schools. They include Becker, Irving, Kingsley, Lincoln, Lowell and Poyner elementary schools as well as George Washington Carver Academy, Hoover Middle School and West High.
