Stone Harbor BOE Rejects $2,000 NCLB Grants

By Leslie Truluck

STONE HARBOR –– The Stone Harbor Board of Education rejected four different No Child Left Behind (NCLB) grants totaling about $2,000 at its meeting Oct. 8, as recommended by Superintendent David Rauenzahn.
Rauenzahn said compliance for the NCLB grant money is complicated and entails attending several meetings and workshops in Trenton. He said the expense of compliance would offset the benefit. Stone Harbor Elementary School receives Rural Education Achievement Program (REAP) grants, which are based on population and proximity to a large city.
The borough has qualified for REAP grants for the past five years, Rauenzahn said, since the borough is considered far from the closest major city, Philadelphia, and has a sparse population. He said by not accepting the smaller NCLB grant, though reserving the right to accept it later, the borough qualifies for a better REAP grant, which is not as demanding.
