Local Districts Capitalize on $19.2M in Innovative Grant Funds

In 2013, Governor John Kasich proposed a Straight A Fund to promote innovative practices that improve academic achievement and economic efficiency in Ohio schools. Congratulations to Stark-area leaders who were awarded $19.2 million in innovative grants.
 
North Canton City Schools, partnered with Walsh University, received $4.6 million for their Technology for Learning Grant. Their grant supported the redesign of the academic environment, inquiry-based media center and upgraded classroom technology and science labs.

The Canton City School District received nearly $1million for their Early Literacy Grant to support K-2 restructured literacy and math-centered schools. Each building has a family resource center and focuses on 21st century skills.
 
The Young Entrepreneurs Consortium (12 school districts, 3 career technical centers and 16 business/community partners) received $13.6 million to enhance district technology and develop Entrepreneurial Pathways for students to earn college credit through Stark State College. 
 
Joe Chaddock, SCESC Superintendent, stated - "The Young Entrepreneurs Consortium has had a profound impact on establishing 21st century classrooms. The grant has allowed districts to upgrade technology infrastructure and provide one-to-one computing. In addition, students are taking advantage of college-level coursework in the Entrepreneurial Pathways. These are just a few of the many great opportunities available for 26,000 consortium students."
