Indiana, Feds Resolve Struggling School Funding Dispute

June 22, 2019

“U.S. education officials have resolved a dispute among Indiana officials by clarifying that struggling schools within ‘transformation zones’ can be eligible to receive federal school improvement grant money beyond four years,” reports Ted Booker for the South Bend Tribune. “The dispute was resolved by the U.S. Department of Education after the Indiana Department of Education, which oversees school districts, claimed in a memo to the 11-member State Board of Education that grant money for transformation zones is limited to four years under the U.S. Every Student Succeeds Act.”
