 REVIEW of 2016-2017 Expenditures:

For 2016-2017, Trust Land Funds actual expenditures for Taylor Elemetnary was $34,718.  An additional 2nd grade teacher was hired, with additional funding from Title I budget, to reduce class sizes in the primary grades from 27 students to 20 students.  This allowed teachers more opportunities to do early interventions.  We also hired intervention specialist to assist students who were below benchmark level to receive additional instructional support and interventions.
