Nevada to receive $3.5 million to improve schools
Clark County, NV (KTNV) -- Nevada is in line for some badly needed funding to help underperforming schools.
The U.S. Department of Education said Nevada will receive $3.5 million from the School Improvement Grant Program.
Since the grant program was created in 2009, Nevada has been awarded $30.4 million.
Nevada plans to use the money for the state's "turnaround model of change," which replaces the principal, reforms curriculum and changes the teaching staff to help underperforming schools.
