Linwood Howe School receives special categorical funds from the state and federal governments to improve our programs. These funds can only be used to provide assistance that goes beyond what our school district regularly provides. Specifically, these funds are used to help accomplish goals that are written in our Single Plan for Student Achievement. The Site Council and the principal work together to make recommendations about spending the categorical funds. The council consists of 5 parents, 3 teachers, 1 classified staff member, and the principal.
