FEDERAL AID

 

 

It is the objective of the Richland Parish School Board to provide equal educational opportunities for all children within the area.  It is the intent of the Board to study all federal legislation, with this philosophy in mind, selecting those particular parts of the legislation which will help the Board to provide better educational opportunities, better educational environment, and better physical and mental growth for each pupil.

 

The Board will seek as many sources of revenue as possible to supplement the funds provided by local taxation and the basic aid offered by the state.

 

The district shall participate in federal aid programs which provide direct educational and auxiliary services or opportunities to students enrolled in the district schools.

 

It is recommended that additional federal funds be requested on the basis of local planning and local needs.
