Concerned about school’s use of grant money

As I am writing checks this week to pay my property tax, I am concerned about the Monticello School District using grant money to extend the Head Start program in the Eastview School. It seems we pay quite a lot to fund our schools with our property taxes. And to have school district money going to a federally funded program seems wrong in my view. Some of the children will not be even going to Monticello Schools. I am sure the ECFE and ECSE programs could most likely use a boost to their strained budgets.
