The Trigg County High and Primary schools will each get an extra $15,000 in “instructional assistance” thanks to a 3 – 0 vote by the Trigg County Board of Education Thursday night.

Trigg County School Superintendent Travis Hamby indicated that the Site-Based Decision-Making (SBDM) Councils for the two schools had already spent this money and that this would basically be a reimbursement.

The bulk of that money will likely go to algebra II and geometry textbooks at the high school. A textbook proposal presented by TCHS Principal Shannon Burcham estimates a cost of more than $21,000 for algebra II and geometry textbooks and various accessories that go with it.

“The Pearson Common Core Algebra II and Geometry text aligns well with the Kentucky Core Academic Standards,” Burcham said in the letter. “While reviewing both texts the math department also found that the lessons also have a strong alignment with the eight Mathematical Practices described in the KCAS (Kentucky Core Academic Standards).”
