The National Center for Education Statistics today released Revenues and Expenditures for Public Elementary and Secondary Education: School Year 2014-15 (Fiscal Year 2015) First Look. Apart from the title being so long that it’s clumsy, it does have some comparative data that may be helpful as you discuss public education in Utah.

The Spanish Fork Rotary instigated a giving tree for students in need in Nebo School District. Business and individuals donated clothes, food, shoes, hygiene supplies and other items to the Dragon Pantry to help bring Christmas to families in need.
“This is our second year doing this,” Tracy Frandsen said. Tracy and his wife Pat helped head up the program this year. “We’ve received almost double from last year and this makes us excited to do it again.”
Word has it there is Christmas Cheer afoot! Thanks to the generosity of Nebo Credit Union members, local schools, and credit union employees, Nebo CU was able to purchase 900 pairs of quality shoes for children in 42 schools and 4 support programs within Nebo School District. Nebo CU began its Warm the Soles Program in 2000, and has been providing shoes at Christmas time ever since. The Credit Union works closely with schools to anonymously determine children in need, then goes to work purchasing, organizing, wrapping, and delivering the shoes.
