One Act Play

The EHS one act play cast will be performing in the zone competition today. EHS is scheduled to perform at 5:00; however, this time is only an estimate. Depending on the plays prior to the EHS performance, the actual performance time may be earlier or later. The competition will be held in Kemp. Everyone is invited to attend. There is no admission charge.

School Funding

The following information comes from an email from the Equity Center. This is certainly a step in the right direction.

This afternoon in the House Appropriations committee, Chairman Pitts substituted
House Bill 1 (the House version of the state budget) for SB 1 (the Senate
approved version of the budget). Additionally, the Chairman offered an
amendment to the bill to provide an additional $1 billion to public education.
As it stands the additional money would be used to increase the Basic Allotment
to $4,890 in FY 14 and to $4,975 in FY 15. Members of the committee applauded
the Chairman and the Article III subcommittee’s efforts before unanimously
adopting the bill.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
