The program’s goal is to significantly increase the number of K-12 students in Indiana public school corporations and charter schools who are emotionally healthy, realize academic success, obtain certifications and degrees necessary for meaningful employment and are prepared to compete and prosper.
The school district will conduct research to investigate programs and strategies that provide outreach, support and resources to its families.
“Although our demographics have changed, our values and expectations remain strong,” said Superintendent Paul A. Kaiser. “The challenges faced by our students continue to grow. This grant award will provide significant resources to assist our staff in helping our students to feel safe, empowered and have a positive educational experience that leads to future achievement and success.”
