10 Fort Worth ISD Texas Schools use No Child Left Behind Money to Fund Retreats at Swanky Places

30 July 2008 at 11:20:06 AM

Like, for example, going to Gaylord in Grapevine.  The South Hills HS retreat costs MORE THAN 50 THOUSAND DOLLARS.

Ten struggling schools in the Fort Worth district are spending more than $200,000 on staff retreats, including $64,500 by South Hills High School for a three-day stay at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine.

The money comes from grants through the federal No Child Left Behind program and must be used by the schools to analyze student test data, comprehensively assess needs, make a campus improvement plan and team-build, according to the Texas Education Agency, which distributes the money. The retreats are allowed, but some wonder if the venues might be excessive.
