(KMOV) – The East St. Louis School District is taking measures to bring back school counselors.

10 years ago, the district made drastic cuts which included counselors in the elementary and middle schools.

According to officials, only 10 percent of the districts funding comes from local revenue.

The district is working on getting grants from the federal government. It will take about two months for the government to evaluate the grants and decide.
