Sterling school officials are among those statewide trying to grapple with reduced funding -- and trying to prevent more take-backs form the state. The school board this week discussed, but did not decide on. a resolution in support of preventing the rescission of $110-million in statewide K-12 funding. ON the flip side, the district is getting a bit more state money,as its head count is up. Officials at the board meeting said the increase appears to be in the secondary grades district-wide. Notes released by the district following the meeting indicate Sterling schools will have over $77-thousand in new funding. The priority for the money, they say, is teacher and staff pay and benefits.
