PAULDING SCHOOLS RECEIVE 1.5 MILLION DOLLAR GRANT
A grant from the state of Ohio will be providing the Paulding Village Schools with over 1.5 million dollars. The funding is part of the ‘straight-A’ program in the state, to reward school districts for their innovative reform ideas. Paulding is one of 24 schools to receive grant funding this year, from a pool of 100-million dollars. State Representative Tony Burkley made the announcement Wednesday in Columbus. Schools were selected based on financial sustainability, statistical analysis, and input from a group of grant advisors. 150 million dollars have been set aside for next year’s grant applicants.
