by Nancy Beal

Without discussion or opposition, on June 23 approximately 20 Jonesporters voted to spend $1,755,169 on their elementary school in fiscal year 2021-22. The lion’s share of that amount was $637,529 in additional local share: money needed beyond what the state considers necessary to run the school according to the funding model that it uses for all Maine schools, known as the Essential Programs and Services allocation model.
