Because it passed through so many dif- ferent committees, he had to meet with each one. "But ob- viously, it's worth it," Williams said. The special legislation is necessary because, though four of Plumas Unified's schools qualify for necessary small school funding--Tay- lorsville Elementary School, and Chester, Greenville and Portola high schools---the dis- trict's overall attendance sur- passes the 2,501 student limit set by the state. Elementary schools must have less than 101 students and high schools must have less than 300 students each to qualify. Williams said other small school districts have been granted the special funding, but it's only Plumas Unified that has to renew the funding through legislation every two years to three years. He hopes to rectify that situation.

Gallagher said he allowed students to choose how the money is spent because "they're the ones who earned it by taking the state test seri- ously and performing well." Greenville High School, as well as Chester, C. Roy Carmichael and Greenville el- ementary schools also earned incentive money, which was applied to various programs at the schools last year. The incentive money is awarded when schools meet improvement goals set by the state. Each year, schools are expected to improve test scores. While the school principals who received the incentive money were pleased, they al- so said it was a little unfair to some schools. Schools that scored high on the original test, such as Greenville High School and Quincy Elementary School, didn't have the opportunity to improve significantly.
