Angela Hudson, federal programs director for the Yazoo County School District, told board members Tuesday that the district will experience a federal funding cut for the year.
“This year we're going to have a pretty good cut, it looks like,” Hudson said. “We were basing on our preliminary allocations for the FY14 school year off of 85 percent of what we got last year. We're pretty much thinking we're not going to get what we got last year.”
According to figures on a handout distributed during the meeting, with this year's Title I federal allocation of $1,066,885, the FY14 allocation will be $906,852, which is 85 percent of the FY13 allocation. Of that amount, $716,413 will be allocated for free and reduced price lunches, $181,370 for administration and $9,069 for parental involvement.
