State Grants Aim to Improve Rural Student Access to STEM/STEAM Programs

December 23, 2020

Georgia education officials announced that nearly $250,000 is being awarded to seven rural school districts to increase access to STEM and STEAM education programs. “Through this grant program and others,” State Superintendent Richard Woods said, “we’re working to ensure schools in rural Georgia have the resources to offer a well-rounded education to their students.” The Georgia Department of Education was able to use a portion of its federally allocated funding to offer the grant, as outlined by ESSA.
