January 18, 2000

Thirty-nine West Virginia schools are recipients of WV READS and/or WVMATH grant awards to provide reading and mathematics instruction outside the school day to increase student achievement.  

Both programs are a result of legislation designed to ensure that every student in the public schools has the opportunity to participate in additional instruction to ensure success in these two content areas.  

The schools announced today will receive $10,000 for reading or math grants. The total amount to be awarded is $600,000- $300,000 in both reading and math. Student achievement in reading and mathematics is critical to the future success of young people, said State Superintendent Dr. Henry Marockie. These grant monies will allow counties to offer innovative, proven strategies to ensure academic success.
