Burlington and Winooski School Districts Win Nellie Mae Grant!

The Burlington and Winooski school districts have won a three-year grant of about $3.5 million designed to help customize the high school experience and allow more young people to succeed in college or the workplace.

The Nellie Mae Education Foundation confirmed Wednesday that the two Chittenden County school districts, which applied jointly for the grant, are winners and would receive an amount close to the $3.5 million they sought in their application, although the precise number won’t be finalized for a week or more. Voices for Vermont’s Children is the Lead Community Partner working on outreach and community engagement for this project.   Read the Burlington Free Press Story here.
