DISD's About to Get Very Stimulated

By now, perhaps, you've read that some $104,070,000 of the nearly $800 billion stimulus package will wind up in the pockets of the Dallas Independent School District. (If your kids aren't in the DISD, you can see how your district fared in the sweepstakes by checking out this site; Plano, $16 million should help, right?) When asked how that money will be spent, DISD spokesman Jon Dahlander told Unfair Park this evening via e-mail, "We're waiting on the regulations to come in from the U.S. Department of Education. They have 30 days to write them and send to [the Texas Education Agency]." Have a good weekend.
