The Warren County School System is in line to receive about $3 million in state grants during the next few years.
The school system will receive more than $725,000 annually for the next three years, plus a slightly smaller amount during the fourth and fifth year, under the 21st Century Grant program, according to a press release.
The money will help expand the 21st Century after school program to each school in Warren County during the coming school year. The grant will also help pay for a school social worker position, computers, software, supplies, scholarships for sports camps, special field trips, summer leadership camps, summer program opportunities, family counseling, GED opportunities and other items.
Also, the school system has been selected to receive $130,000 in grants to provide math coaches for teachers at the middle and high school on a part-time basis. The coaches will help ensure that the school's curriculum is aligned to the new tests based on the Georgia Performance Standards.
