Only Few Days Left Before Start of Classes in Alachua County Public Schools
Cuts in state funding mean the Alachua County School District will have $700 less per student than they did at the start of last year. $9 million in federal stimulus dollars will go toward making up for those cuts and the district also anticipates another $13 million from the "One Mill" campaign passed by voters.
"We're just trying to maintain a steady state," said SBAC Superintendent Dan Boyd. "Make sure our teachers have the kind of support they need in the schools so they can be successful. I'm confident that all will be well."
