County schools to receive federal money

Nevada County schools may receive $770, 856 in the fiscal year 2007 from a federal act that brings money to fund education in rural counties across America.

The money will come from a spending bill that President Bush signed into law on Friday.

Since 1908 till 2000, rural counties that have national forests in them, received money from the sale of timber to help support local schools. In 2000 the Secure Rural Schools and Communities Self Determination Act replaced the timber program to support rural schools and counties. The Act lapsed at the end of 2006, and has now been extended for a year.
