State Apportions More Money for Schools in Ray

Amount of Apportionment for 1939-40 Year Increased To $85,936, King Says

$33,347 In August

JEFFERSON CITY - Loyd W. King, state superintendent of schools, has announced that Ray County will receive approximately $33,347, the largest payment ever made in August distribution of state funds for the support of the public schools.

This shows an increase of $2,965 over the amount of state support given in August, 1938, which was $30,382.

The total amount paid in Ray County in 1938-39 was $72,972. The total amount apportioned for the 1939-40 school year is $85,936. The August payment represents 38 percent of the total apportionment. Superintendent Kings' office is paying a total amount of $5,555 - 482.90 to the schools of the state at this time.

The state pays about one-fourth of the cost of operating the public elementary and secondary schools. The other three-fourths is provided for locally. The amount raised locally for the support of public education has decreased in about the same proportion that the state distribution funds have increased so that the schools of the state are spending approximately the same amount of money now that they did ten years ago.
