Funding tops list of concerns

(Continued)

DUNCAN —

Davidson said the meeting was routine and revolved mostly around school funding, from funding lost and unfunded mandates.
“The major concern is trying to get funding replaced,” Davidson said. “We have hundreds of deals we’re watching.”
For Cobb and Duncan Public Schools, the watchful eyes are also focusing on what’s happening at the federal level legislature, especially as it applies to sequestration.
“It will be a pinch, but it won’t cripple schools,” Cobb said. “From what Rep. Tom Cole has said, it sounds like there will be cuts. If cuts are across the board, it’s not just Title I.
“We’ll take what comes. As a district, we have made careful and thoughtful decisions. We will have school and do right by the students. It’s getting more difficult to make that statement.”
