Monroe Schools' Scheduling News In order to give Monroe County kindergarten students a better opportunity to have an equal number of days In atten- dance, aU students who are en- rolled in kindergarten will no longer make the switch from Monday-Wednesday-Friday to Tuesday-Thursday or from Tues- day-Thursday to Monday- Wednesday-Friday at the end of the semester. Instead the stu- dents will switch off on the first day of each new nine weeks. This year, those days to make the switch are: Wednesday, No- vember 7, Friday, January 25, and Friday, march 29. This ap- plies to all kindergarten children in the county with the exception of the students attending Green- ville School. This school has only one class of students who attend all year on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. All other elementary schools have more than one kin- dergarten class which necessi- tates switching off. Monroe County also has, for the first time, a mini-grant pro- gram designed specifically from Chapter 2 funds for all teachers. What is Chapter 2? It is a feder- ally-funded program which al- lows a portion of money to be allotted to teach county school system. This money may be used in a variety of ways to purchase equipment, library books, com- puters, and teacher training to meet the needs of that particular school system. In a county-wide needs assessment done in the spring of 1990, Monroe County teachers indicated they would like to have more individual use of Chapter 2 funds to meet the needs of the individual students in their classrooms. At the same time teachers also said they needed more books for children to read. To address this concern, some of the Chapter 2 money was set aside to allow any teacher in the county to submit a grant appli- cation which centered on reading and writing activities. If the grant met all the criteria for ac- ceptance, then a teacher could conceivably have as much as $549 to spend on reading and writing materials for specified lessons in any given subject area.
