At Tuesday’s meeting, the LSC voted to approve the recommended allocation of these funds for continued funding and personnel support for of our ecology program, essentials programs and recess/lunch programs, as well as the second phase of our technology upgrade, continued implementation of the STEAM initiative at each grade level, expanded after school programming, and collaboration time for the instructional leadership team with our grade level teacher teams. Below is the breakdown:
