District 6 Hopes Flood Doesn’t Cost Them Millions
Greeley-Evans School District 6 officials are hoping the flood doesn’t cost them millions of dollars. Tuesday, Oct. 1st, is the day students in Colorado are counted to determine exactly how much funding each school district will receive.
‘We’ve had significant movement every day,” said Theresa Myers, director of communications for the district. “People who have lost their homes are couch surfing, and kids are on the move.”
If the district doesn’t locate all the children affected by the floods in the next few days, it could cost the district major funding.
District 6 projected about 20,800 students in all of its schools, including the charters, this year, but the flood has displaced several hundred families. According to the district, as high as 1,100 kids have been absent in one day during the crisis.
