Sioux Central School Board

December 03, 2015

The Sioux Central / Albert City Truesdale semi-annual joint meeting occurred during the Sioux Central Board of Education meeting last month.
A major discussion item focused on the financial inequity of State Supplemental Aid between all districts in the state of Iowa. There is a $175 dollar difference per student from the maximum and minimum amounts. Both Sioux Central and AC-T are near the minimum amount. Including both districts, that amounts to $122,500 not received annually, and over multiple years, that amount becomes very significant.
According to Superintendent Scott Williamson, both boards support the Iowa Association of School Boards having this issue be a legislative priority. Both boards hope the legislature begins to resolve the financial spending authority inequity.
