Reidland Elementary receives $675,000 grant to launch 21st Century program
Reidland Elementary will launch its own 21st Century Community Learning Center this fall, thanks to a $675,000, five-year grant from the Kentucky Department of Education. The program will provide before and after school academic and enrichment programming for students at no cost to families, including transportation to and from the program. All students will be encouraged to attend, but special attention will be given to recruiting students who came to RES “not ready” for kindergarten, students scoring below proficiency in reading and/or math, and students from low-income families.
