Without local funds in place, it appeared earlier this year that the annual Kane Summer School program could be shelved.
The district, however, now is expecting federal funds to cover the Summer School cost, estimated at $42,000.
Acting at its meeting Wednesday at the Kane Middle School auditorium, the school board voted 8-0 to approve a five-week Summer School program-- pending receipt of the federal funds.
More than 70 Kane school children have reasons to smile today after undergoing dental checkups earlier this week.
The exams for children in kindergarten through eighth grade were given during the school day as part of the Mobile Dentist program.
Dr. Janice McVay, a Pittsburgh dentist, performed the dental exams in the nurseâ€™s office for the Kane Elementary School and Kane Middle School. Assisting were dental hygienists Kelly Bidwell of Union City and Brenda Bosworth of Port Allegany.
