FDCSD approves resolution for dropout prevention

The Fort Dodge Community School District board passed a resolution Monday night to help secure funding for the district’s at-risk/dropout prevention program.

The board voted unanimously to approve a resolution to submit a request to the School Budget Review Committee for Modified Supplemental Amount and Supplemental Aid for the 2019-20 dropout prevention program.

The request is in the amount of $1,237,153 for expenditures necessary to implement the program.

Rob Hughes, FDCSD assistant superintendent, said a majority of those funds are used for staffing.

Jesse Ulrich, FDCSD superintendent, said staff would present information relating to the program at a future board meeting.
