7 Conn. school districts share $250,000 in aid

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Seven Connecticut school districts will share $250,000 in federal aid to offset expenses resulting from Superstorm Sandy.


Bridgeport, Guilford, Milford, New Fairfield, North Haven, New Haven and LEARN, a regional education service center in southeastern Connecticut, shared the money.

Milford lost a week of classes. Chief Operations Officer James Richetelli Jr. said the district will use the money to offset transportation costs.

Some students became homeless in Milford and some left the town for a while. Richetelli says the district was still responsible for transporting the children to school.

Several Bridgeport schools lost a week of classroom instruction because they were without power or were used as shelters. District officials said the money will be used for counseling, security and other costs related to using the schools as shelters.
