You won’t read about this in the local mainstream media, but the federal government is coming to the rescue of Great Falls Public Schools.
As a result of the multi-trillion dollar federal response to the coronavirus, GFPS stands to receive $2,382,452.53 (p. 3 from the embedded .pdf via the Montana Office of Public Instruction).
Of particular note, on p.1: “School districts will have broad latitude on how to spend these funds.”
Thanks to Sen. Llew Jones (R-Conrad) for sending this to one of our readers, who promptly sent it to E-City Beat.
Of course, the School District is fully cognizant of what they will get — over $600,000 more than the permanent tax levy ($1.75 million) they are seeking to impose on all of us.
They still want the levy anyway.
