Thanks for $4.2 million – but we need more.
Kris Corey, superintendent of the Fairfield-Suisun School District, and two trustees said Thursday the state funds for Common Core are welcome but inadequate.
“We all know it’s not going to cut it,” Trustee John Silva said.
Trustee Pat Shamansky, reviewing plans to spend the $4.2 million, said of the money: “It isn’t enough for all the needs.” Corey said the district will continue to advocate for more as it put in place new school standards called Common Core. A total of $1.2 billion is allocated statewide for the effort.
