Worcester School Committee stands by decision to extend remote learning, will respond to letter from state education officials

Members of the Worcester School Committee on Thursday night stood by a decision to extend remote learning during the pandemic, as the district administration works to respond to a request for more information from Massachusetts education officials.

Superintendent Maureen Binienda told committee members during Thursday’s meeting that the district received a letter from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education seeking more information about when students are expected to return to classrooms. Other districts that are using online learning models also got a letter, Binienda said.

Last month, the committee voted to push back the start of a hybrid learning model as updates to school HVAC systems were ongoing.

State Superintendent Michael Rice orders replacement of GISD special education funding formula

GENESEE COUNTY, MI — State Superintendent Michael Rice has ruled the formula used to funnel some special education dollars through the Genesee Intermediate School District to local districts does not meet legal requirements.

In a Nov. 24 ruling, Rice ordered that the current formula be immediately replaced with one that is more equitable.

Under the previous formula, the GISD Mandatory Plan appropriates $3.8 million of Act 18 special education funds back to local districts based on a three-part formula:

-Total special education headcount

-Full-time-equivalent (FTE) special education student head count

-Total FTE headcount

FTE head count is adjusted for part-time student numbers. These three factors are currently equally weighted.

The formula did not accommodate Flint Community Schools’ declining enrollment and unique circumstances created by the water crisis, Rice ruled.

Flint schools had a total student count of 7,207 in 2013, the year the formula was last modified.

This year, enrollment
