Preston County Schools to Receive $10.23 Million in Stimulus Money |  News

— Extended learning program, $2.3 million, to include summer, and before and after school programing. “In looking at our data in reading/language art skills, it is the writing that is pulling those scores down more than the reading ability of students,” Wotring said. — Instructional technology, $550,000. This money will be used to upgrade teacher devices and presentation stations.

Most of the money will go into “unfinished learning.” The county isn’t calling it “learning loss,” Wotring said. “We haven’t lost anything.” The state approved all of the expenditures proposed by the county, he said.

— Professional positions, $510,000, including two writing coaches, as well as an instructional coach at the high school. “We had to go do a presentation before a state group to get approval for what we were going to do,” the superintendent explained. “And there are all kinds of limitations with federal dollars. So as a staff we sat down and put together a budget.”

— Food preparation and packaging, $250,000. “On any day that we’re not in school that we have to try to find a plan to feed students, there’s packaging that we need to look at, etc.,” Wotring said. — Two line items were included under parent involvement: Communication, $150,000, and parent engagement activities, $200.000. — Staff learning stipends and substitutes, $1.52 million. This will provide for staff training and pay substitute employees.

— Staff planning stipends, $750,000. These will be given to both professional and service personnel. This will pay them for planning time beyond the regular school day. — Virtual instruction, $350,000. This is to pay Edmentum, the company that will be providing virtual education this year for Preston County Schools. This is only for full-time virtual students.
