Trustee Paul DeMeyer, saying that he thought the program at Esperanza was one of the best for a school of Gridley's size, still in- sisted that the state should pay for it.

The board decided to explore the alternatives and asked Superinten- dent Charles Nelson to look into the funding rules through Butte County. parents.
