Sad :( One more thing coming off my plate - not something I wanted to give up either.

Heard from the curriculum office - RIF is no longer in exsistance. No wonder I had to call looking for our budget information. After all of those years feeling like Chicken Little, sending e-mails that it was going to be cut from the federal budget, and having it reinstated year after year, this year there was nothing and funding was not just reduced, but 100% cut. No mention from the district, no e-mails from RIF, nothing.
I guess at least we only have one date scheduled. Frees up my schedule a little over the next 4 years . I LOVE doing RIF, ordering the books with my friends/other parents, setting up, coming up with activities, spending the day helping the kids pick out books. Always exhausted at the end of the day, but so worth it.
In the meantime I will be a bit busier, making an inventory of the books we have, figuring out what we need, if we can get a discount from the two companies we usually order from, and hoping with PTA help we can pull off at least one full distribution at our school this year. I have a few ideas to at least get books for the younger grades as we won't have federal restrictions... but one step at a time. sigh.
