Before-school, after-school programming to be offered
Riverside Local Schools will receive funds totaling more than $100,000 to implement new before- and after-school programming as the result of a receipt of a federal grant, officials announced at Tuesday evening’s board of education meeting.
Superintendent Scott Mann said after three years of completing applications, the district has been awarded a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant. The initiative funds support high-quality, out-of-school time learning opportunities and related activities for students who attend eligible schools.
“I think we can do phenomenal things with this,” the superintendent said. “It’s a great win for our school district.”
“We’ve spent about three years working on this and have involved a lot of partners in the community.”
