Worth County School Receives Title I Donation

Worth County Superintendent Chris Healy notified Worth County school board members Wednesday that the district has received a $2,000 from the First Interstate Bank. The donation will be used to supplement the school’s Title I programs. Title I math purchased take home math learning games with the donation.

A budget amendment was also approved for the 23-24 budget. The amendment updated the pre-k revenue and expenditures and updated the vocational grant expenditures and revenue.

Worth County’s Annual Performance scores were also reviewed. The districts showed slight increases in their APR scors and scored in the top 15 to 35 percent of all districts on Math, English, and Science end of year assessments.

The district approved a required lead testing plan. The deadline for that testing is August 1st.

The board also approved a transportation program evaluation. Recommendations of that evaluation included upgrading buses and school vehicles when possible and continuing to search for bus drivers.

Worth County’s board also accepted the resignation of custodian Larry Richardson at the session.
