W.S. Academy gets $1.6 million grant

Warm Springs K-8 Academy was among three Oregon schools selected for a U.S. Department of Education School Improvement Grant, it was announced May 13.

The new Warm Springs school will be receiving $1.6 million, over a three-year period.

The federal funding is designed to help improve student achievement in persistently low-achieving schools. The other schools receiving SIG grants were East Gresham Elementary, and Woodlawn Elementary in Portland.

“These grants provide a few of our lowest-performing schools with the support and funding to jumpstart their school improvement efforts,” said Deputy Superintendent Rob Saxton. “Change can be hard, but these schools are facing their challenges, embracing needed change, and fully committing to the work of dramatically improving student outcomes. I am proud of their commitment and look forward to seeing the results in the years to come.”
