JACKSON TWP: The Jackson Board of Education discussed the Third Grade Reading Guarantee at its meeting Tuesday night.


This initiative allows teachers to hold back third grade students who do not pass state reading tests. 


Superintendent Chris DiLoreto said official results of state tests are delayed because of investigations into school districts that may have lied about attendance records in order to help their state test ratings. No school district in the local area is under investigation.


Treasurer Linda Paris showed past school revenue funds at $62 million.  Revenue for this year is expected to be about $65 million because the district replaced retired or high seniority teachers with those of a lower salary.


The next Board of Education meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 16 at Sauder Elementary School.
