If you picked up today’s Boston Globe and read that several poorer school systems, including Boston, would not be receiving any of the $168 million in federal stimulus funds announced by Gov. Deval Patrick yesterday, you probably wondered how Grafton stood.
I know I did. There wasn’t a chart, so I searched one out and found it here. Grafton stands to gain $1,080,287 , which appears to be on top of the stimulus funds announced last month by state Sen. Michael Moore. I can’t say how it’s going to fit into the overall budget, anyone know?
The formula used to determine which towns receive money — and how much — is related to increasing enrollment, of which Grafton, of course, has seen a tremendous increase.
Here’s another take on the visit by one of my favorite former colleagues, who was on the scene at Framingham’s Woodrow Wilson School for the announcement.
