BOSTON—Senator Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton) and Danielle Gregoire (Marlborough) announced that the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has awarded $16,963 Literacy Partnerships grants for Marlborough 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.”
“I am pleased to see that Marlborough Public Schools have been awarded a Literacy Partnership grant from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education,” said Representative Gregoire. “This funding will better prepare our students in the subjects of literacy and humanities and will ultimately help them succeed as they continue their academic careers.”
