Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz awarded more than $16 million in School Improvement Grants on Wednesday, Oct. 19. The competitive grants were given to 14 Indiana schools to support the implementation of comprehensive school improvement plans.  
 
George H. Fisher School 93 is one of the 14 grant recipients, and the only IPS school in this cohort.
 

“As I travel the state, I see school leaders and educators working every day to improve instruction and outcomes for Hoosier students,” said Ritz.  “I am dedicated to supporting the great work that is happening in our schools and providing additional resources to support our students. That is why I am pleased to award more than $16 million in School Improvement Grants today to support this important effort.”

 

School Improvement Grants provide funding to schools that demonstrate a need for additional funds as well as a commitment to use the funds to raise student achievement in low performing schools. The grants are funded by the federal government.
 
 
George H. Fisher was awarded $1.32 million.
