Cavaletto Meets with Local Educators on Funding and School Aid Formula

This morning State Representative John Cavaletto (R-Salem) met with Superintendent Ron Daniels at Centralia High School to discuss a variety of topics of concern to administrators from the Regional Office of Education (ROE) #13 area that includes Marion, Clinton, Washington and Jefferson Counties. Also in attendance were State Rep. Terri Bryant and State Senator David Luechtefeld. In addition to the financial challenges facing schools and the state, the state's school aid formula was also discussed and the proposal that is moving through the legislature. Based on the current formula, some districts may lose dollars and others may gain depending on the final language of the legislation.
