DC Public Schools spending big bucks on school supplies

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

D.C. Public Schools announced it is spending $10 million on enhanced learning supplies. The money is being spent after school officials noticed there were unused funds in last year’s budget.

DCPS bought more than 85,000 books, 4,000 musical instruments, 2,000 computers and other equipment needed in classrooms.

School officials say the funds came from personnel vacancies. We are told most of those vacancies were in the central office.
