Nevada Receives $3.7M School Grant

(Washington, D.C.) — The U.S. Department of Education has approved a grant package for low performing schools in Nevada.

Through the Department’s School Improvement Grant Program, the state will receive $3,725,820.

The announcement was made Thursday morning in a press release from the office of Senator Harry Reid.

“This is terrific news for Nevada and our public schools,” said Senator Reid. “This money is vital for our children as we continue to see budget shortfalls throughout school districts across Nevada. This funding will go a long way to ensure more Nevada students have high quality teachers, to help improve instruction, and to help lift up many low-performing schools.”
