PIERCETON â The Whitko Community School Corporation board of school trustees held its monthly meeting Monday evening with superintendent Steve Clason providing several updates.
âThe legislative session is going to pick up after Jan. 1 and the biggest item they will have on their plate is the budget. There is a lot of discussion about how they will balance the budget when the income has not re-couped yet from the recession we are in,â Clason said. âWe continue to hear that we will be receiving like amounts of funding that we had last year and there will not be any reductions.â
