Wyo. Getting $1.1M To Help Low-Achieving Schools

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan says Wyoming will receive $1.1 million to turn around its persistently lowest-achieving schools.

The money comes from the Education Department’s School Improvement Grants program. The funds are part of $535 million provided through the fiscal 2011 budget and made available to states through the program.

Schools that apply for part of the grant money would have to implement one of four models for improving schools, whether it’s through replacing the principal and much of the staff; reopening as a charter school; closing the school and sending students to higher-achieving schools; or replacing the school and reforming the curriculum.
