Janesville schools' Challenge Program to expand
JANESVILLE--The Janesville School Board agreed on Tuesday night to expand the Challenge Program for high-ability students.
A new fourth-grade section of the program will open at Madison Elementary School in the fall. The expansion will accommodate 25 students who had qualified but for whom there was no room.
The board voted 6-2 to allow the plan to go forward despite concerns that a cost of $72,000 could make balancing the budget more difficult.
