Turnaround funds coming...eventually
As well captured by today's Telegram article, the federal funds announced yesterday by the Department of Education are the same funds...that we already knew were coming (the fed has been making announcements, a few states at a time, since the spring). It's the Level 4 schools money. Note that, as mentioned at the Worcester School Committee meeting on June 24 (and my notes from the MASC meeting on May 8), the half a million per school of turnaround funds will not be available this year, as the application deadline is too soon. There are some "bridge" funds for this year.
