Concord schools receives grant to amplify opportunities for students
ELKHART, Ind. -- Concord Community Schools received a $210,000 grant to spend on courses and experiences that would prepare students for life after high school.
The funding will be used to create a STEM program for high schoolers along with opportunities to talk with medical professionals and gain field experience.
“We continue to hear from local industries the desire for us to prepare students for high-wage, high-demand careers and the way that we do that most effectively is by exposing students to hands-on learning opportunities early and often," said Dr. Lisa Kendall, Assistant Superintendent for Educational Programming.
This program will begin with 120 students, with the enrollment rate expected to triple by 2023.
