W.Va. to Get Funding for Low-Performing Schools
West Virginia will receive $3.2 million in federal funding for continued efforts to help low-performing schools.
The U.S. Department of Education announced more than $38 million in school improvement grants for West Virginia and five other states Friday. Education agencies in each state will dole out the funding to districts that demonstrate the greatest need for the funds.
West Virginia Department of Education spokeswoman Liza Cordeiro says 25 schools in 18 West Virginia counties are eligible to apply. She says schools would be able to use the funding on such things as parent and community activities, consultants, hiring staff or professional development for staff to improve student achievement.
