School Bill Allots Money

Gingery

The Wyoming House of Representatives are considering a bill that would restructure the way school districts receive funding derived from property taxes within their own counties. Under the current system, Representative Keith Gingery explains that the money received is placed into one general fund and then re-distributed based upon the number of students in that district. Gingery points out that this is one of the most important bills that will directly affect Teton County this year. Gingery was successful on amending the bill to benefit the Dubois School District as well, which is also part of his district. The Gingery amendment expanded the small school district definition from 147 students to 243 students, which will provide extra funds to Dubois Schools. Major discussions have centered around transportation issues. Transportation costs are reimbursed at 100% to school districts. Gingery says another bill is still pending which would increase the money available to Teton County for its English Language Learners program.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
