BOSTON—Senator Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton) and Representative Kate Hogan (D-Stow) announced that the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has awarded $14,760 Literacy Partnerships grants for Hudson Public Schools.
The purpose of the state-funded Literacy Partnerships grant program is to support the use of Pre-K to grade 6 model curriculum units in literacy and humanities, as well as aligning curriculum, instruction, assessment, and professional development with the 2011 Massachusetts Curriculum Framework for English Language Arts and Literacy.
“Investing in the education of children at an early age is critical to improving learning, and helps put kids on the path to greater skills,” said Senator Jamie Eldridge. “I am pleased that the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education was able to secure this valuable funding to help sharpen and develop the English language and literacy skills of Hudson Public School students.”
“In educating our students it is essential to provide a curriculum that creates a passion for reading that will sustain lifelong learning,” said Representative Kate Hogan. “The Literacy Partnership grant will support programs for our teachers as they enrich young minds, develop the imagination of their students and encourage critical thinking in our classrooms.”
