Opinions split about timing of state school aid

LANSING – Mason County Central Schools’ resolution asking for legislation to rethink the timing of school aid may eliminate its need to borrow money from banks. According to Superintendent Jeff Mount, proposals like that are “sweeping across the state” and should be addressed immediately. Mount said timing originally became a problem after the state switched its fiscal year to Oct. 1 through Sept. 30 to save the state money.
