Clinton Schools stand to lose over $1.5-million over a two year period in the lastest funding reform proposal out of Springfield.

 

Superintendent Curt Nettles indicates while there is a prevision for no loss of revenue in the first year, that's still a devastating number compounded by a potential loss of revenue from the power plant.

 

 

The current funding formula has come under fire in recent years and many school leaders attribute that to the fact the state hasn't fully funded it in almost a decade. Nettles believes it is time for reform.

 

 

The State will be conducting a study on how much it takes to educate kids and Nettles feels the state needs to seriously look at that. He also hopes they consider giving schools more local control.

 

 

Nettles indicates the study is part of the Vision 2020 model that was introduced a few year ago.
