NORTH COAST- Some Eureka City Schools and Klamath-Trinity Joint Unified School District schools have received a federal grant which schools all over the nation competed for. The Eureka City Schools Superintendent, Fred Van Vleck, says that the extra funding will help student achievement.
The grant was awarded last week and is designed to relate visual and performing art activities to what kids learn in their core classes. The grant is for more than $2 million dollars and will be used over the next four years at various elementary and middle schools through a partnership with HSU. Alice Birney Elementary School, Grant Elementary School, Lafayette Elementary School, Washington Elementary School, Winship Middle School, Zane Middle School, Hoopa Elementary School and Trinity Valley Elementary School will benefit from the funding.
