The Louisa-Muscatine Board of Education met on Monday and one of the main items on their agenda was the application for modified allowable growth for at risk programs. Superintendent Scott Grimes says it is an annual application that allows the district to help support at risk students, including learning centers and the alternative school program at the High School. The board gave the programs $154,125, which is lower then in the past. Grimes says this is because of the change in uses for the money. The board also discussed streamlining the process they use to evaluate coaches and changed the date for the February 2011 meeting for Wednesday February 16th.
