Treasurer Ellen Scott told the News the district was not expecting the reduction, but it is not unusual for federal funding for schools to fluctuate. To make up for the loss, she said, the district will probably have to decrease the amount of time a reading tutor serves the children of the district.

During the public participation portion of the meeting, Scott said, Dennis Sykes talked about the Centerburg Joint Recreation District, Susan Chestnut and Jill Spearman-Macklin discussed activities through the 21st Century grant and Robert Kirk provided enrollment statistics from the Knox County Career Center.
