NEW: Worcester Public Schools Score $45K in Gateway Cities Education Grants

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

 

Massachusetts Education Secretary Matthew Malone announced $3.4 million in grants, including $45,000 for Worcester Public Schools and the Central Massachusetts Workforce Investment Board, to support targeted English Language instruction and early career education for students across the Bay State as part of the Administration’s Gateway Cities Education Agenda.

The money in Worcester will be used to establish a Career Academy at North High School focused on STEM careers and includes partnerships with the Latino Education Institute at Worcester State University and Quinsigamond Community College.

“The focus of the Gateway Agenda, and our number one priority in education, is creating opportunity for every child in the Commonwealth regardless of his or her background or circumstance,” said Patrick in a statement.

“These targeted supports for students will help us close achievement gaps more quickly and ensure that all of our students are prepared for success in the classroom and beyond.”

Fitchburg Public Schools will also receive $250,000 to fund a summer program focused on English language learning, career awareness and college readiness. The school district's partners will include Mount Wachusett Community College, United Neighbors of Fitchburg, Inc., the Fitchburg Art Museum and the North Central Charter Essential School.
