Phantom School Districts Tagged for Stimulus Dollars

• ProPublica
Hillcrest was one of nearly 14,000 school districts or local education agencies nationwide that the U.S. Department of Education reported would get stimulus funds under its Title I program. But some of those districts are phantoms because they were dissolved or merged. In Kansas, 11 school districts that no longer exist are on the U.S. Department of Education’s distribution list for stimulus funds. They are set to receive nearly $600,000 under the stimulus. We found these school districts when Kirby Ross, Managing Editor of the Phillips County Review in Phillipsburg, Kan., alerted us that our county-by-county stimulus tracker included two districts in his area that didn’t exist. That prompted us to do some more digging.
