Milford School District will hold a public hearing related to Opportunity Grant Funding

Milford School District is requesting a waiver of the Opportunity Grant allocation requirements. The grant requires 98 percent of the allocation be used at the school that generates the funding. Due to programming currently in place prior to these requirements and the districtwide support of multilingual and low-income students, the district plans to use the funds to best support all students regardless of their home school location. This plan will require the Board of Education to waive the grant requirements.

The district will host a meeting of the Milford Board of Education on June 17, 2024, requesting action on this waiver. Public comments regarding this waiver provision may be made in accordance with Board Policy 8503 Public and Employee Participation at Board of Education meetings.

Written comments should be directed to the Superintendent no later than five days prior to the June 17, 2024, board meeting. All comments will be shared with the Board of Education prior to their vote on June 17. Any questions or concerns can be directed to Dr. Sara Hale at [email protected] or call 302-422-1600.
