MPS Receives Educational Grant

Over the next four years, Montgomery Public Schools could received more than $5.5 million from federal grants.

The first $1.4 million grant is in hand.

It will be used to create a safe and stimulating learning environment...something school officials say they haven't had the money to fund in the past.

This grant is one of 27 - awarded nationwide - under the No Child Left Behind Act, which promotes the safe schools-healthy students initiative.
