Montrose board OKs $31,000 for curriculum aid
The Montrose County School Board this week approved spending $31,110 for new curriculum maps for middle and high school classrooms.
The maps are provided by Focal Point, an educational consulting group. Comments by teachers and administrators about the importance of the maps helped garner board members’ support, the school district said.
Grades kindergarten through 11 will receive maps in reading, writing, communications and math, while grades kindergarten through eight will receive science maps.
The board also approved accepting a grant from the Caring for Colorado Foundation, which awarded $12,975 to the Northside Elementary School Child Health Center to be used to fund its Oral Health Program.
The annual grant pays for a dental hygienist to visit the school once a week to provide dental care, Montrose County School District spokeswoman Laurie Laird said.
