Assistance for Ventura County Schools Closed by Wildfires


Bookmark and Share

Schools in the Ventura County area closed by recent wildfires can apply to receive state funding and other support from the California Department of Education.  In a recent announcement, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced that assistance is available for schools that were closed due to wildfire.  

Education agencies are allowed to apply for waivers to hold them hamless from loss of attendance based on local control funding formula (LCFF) funding and instructional time penalties if such disasters as flood, fires or earthquakes result in school closure.  Resourses on the CDE Wildfires Webpage can be accessed here.
