UVa and Southwestern Public Schools Win $1 Million Grant

April 8, 2008

A group of University of Virginia educators have been working with some school divisions in Southwest Virginia to secure funds so that children in that region can learn American history in the most engaging ways possible.

Their efforts paid off on April 2, when the U.S. Department of Education announced that this project received nearly $1 million, the largest of the four grants awarded to Virginia.

In all, 121 grants totaling $114.7 million were awarded to school districts in 40 states nationwide to improve the quality of American history education, U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings announced.

Among the 121 recipients, the four Virginia school districts to win TAH grants are: Hampton City Schools, $990,107; Prince William County Schools, $856,541; Norton City Public Schools, $992,501; and Waynesboro Public Schools, $455,145.
