Innovation Grant for Jefferson (Congratulations!!)

Jefferson County Schools will receive one of 49 Investing in Innovation (or I3) grants funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (also known as the "stimulus bill").  EdWeek has the breaking news of those Kentucky successes.

The project, titled "Making Time for What Matters," requested just under $5 million for a proposal that included this summary information posted by the U.S. Department of Education:
Our i3 Development grant, will demonstrate the power of a coherent targeted strategy to turn around our six persistently low-performing high schools in the context of a trimester schedule that will drive academic acceleration, promote social and emotional well-being, and advance teacher professional growth.
