United Board of Education Continues Agreement with ROE for Vocational Program Funding


The United School Board of Education recently approved to continue their agreement with the Regional Office of Education #33 Delabar Agency, which offers funding for vocational classes of Industrial Tech, Ag, and Business programs, shares Superintendent Jeff Whitsitt:

“Gives them a little bit of funding, keeps them with supplies and equipment that doesn’t come out of our local budget. As much as anything, it offers our vocational teachers some professional development and opportunities that we can’t always do. If you think about in a school district when we have a School Improvement Day or Professional Development Day, it is hard to target every area. If you do something for math that may not necessarily impact your ag program. Having Delabar there to provide professional development in bringing all the ag teachers from the area together or all the business teachers from the area together to do those things is big. We need those kinds of cooperative ventures to provide for those folks.”

The United School Board will hold a special budget meeting on Wednesday, September 21st at 5 pm. The budget was first heard at the August meeting and requires 30 days in between before a final vote to approve.
