In a speech explaining that there would be no Read More...

It has struggled in recent times and this year faced a deficit of $400,000. But after the new law went into effect on June 29, school officials put in place new policies they estimate will turn that $400,000 deficit into a $1.5 million surplus. And it’s all Read More...
