SHELBY ANNOUNCES OVER $399,000 FOR MADISON COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATION

U.S. Senator Richard C. Shelby (R-Ala) announced today that the U.S. Department of Education is releasing $399,998 for the Madison County Board of Education. This funding is part of the Smaller Learning Communities Program which will receive over $71 million nationwide.

The program will promote academic achievement through planning and implementation of smaller learning environments in large public high schools. This will help ensure that all students graduate with the knowledge and skills necessary to make successful transitions to college and careers.

Senator Shelby said, “I am pleased to make this announcement for the Madison County Board of Education. When we invest in our children and education systems, we invest in the future of our country. These funds will help the students of Madison County be better prepared for college and the work force after graduation.”
