State Superintendent Dr. Richard Ross visited Paulding to congratulate the Paulding, Wayne Trace, Crestview and Lincolnview on receiving the Straight A Fund Grant.
Our application was one of 24 programs serving more than 150 local districts and partners that the Straight A Governing Board nominated after a rigorous screening process.
“There was tremendous competition to receive a Straight A grant,” said Dr. Richard A. Ross, Superintendent of Public Instruction. “All of Ohio will look to the winning proposals for ideas to reduce costs and transform learning in our state.”
The Straight A Fund is the largest statewide, competitive innovation fund in the history of American education. The grants serve as startup funds for the most creative and forward-thinking ideas coming from educators and their partners in the public and private sectors. Successful projects had to demonstrate that they would improve achievement, reduce spending and target more resources to the classroom. All four schools will receive a combined total of 1.57 million dollars.
