REDMOND, OR -- The Redmond School District is the latest to receive federal funds as reimbursement for costs incurred during last winter's extreme weather. Redmond Schools will receive a $464,000 grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to recoup the expense of removing snow from roofs during a January 2017 storm.

 

Earlier this week, FEMA awarded $1.1 million to Bend-La Pine Schools to help cover its 2017 snow-related expenses. 

 

U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) said in a statement, "I am gratified this federal assistance is heading to Redmond schools so the district can be reimbursed for unexpected snow expenses. Ensuring local resources are not forced to be spent outside the classroom is a must for students, teachers and staff to have every opportunity at educational excellence."

 

"Our schools can't budget for surprise weather events, and our students shouldn't suffer when they strike," U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) said in a statement issued Tuesday.
