2019-2020 EDUCATION GRANTS
Teachers received either the JLLV Education Grant or the Centennial Education Grant. The money allocated for both grants supports school teachers across Clark County who have created innovative curriculums designed to enhance student learning. Roughly 8,500 students will be impacted by these grants. Nearly 40 of the educators receiving grants teach at Title I schools
