School administration said the money will be dispersed over the next three years, and they’re excited to see it advance educational efforts that have been in the works.
“We’ve seen some tremendous gains over the past three years and this grant will allow us to sustain those gains and continue those improvements,” said Fred Bartels, Mills School Principal.
The grant will go towards supporting four goals – recruiting and retaining high-quality staff, building a cultural bridge with families in the Mills neighborhood, continue professional development, and provide incentives to help students meet performance goals.
