In midst of budget crunch, Lew-Port looks to foreign exchange program for help


Niagara Gazette — But any hope in using the foreign exchange income to fund exchange expenses is out of Roser's hands. All financial matters are handled by the school board and it'll be up to the seven-member group to determine what any money generated by Casseri's certification efforts will be used for.

"It's up to the board to determine," Roser said. "If we have a number of students come in, we may use it to fund those opportunities.

"I have some questions about it, but the board felt they wanted to go down this path. I like the opportunities for the kids, but I have to worry about all 2,100 of them in the district, not just a select few."
