Virginia Receives $1.5 Million Federal Grant to Improve Outcomes for Students with Disabilities

Description:

Governor McAuliffe announced last week that the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has been awarded a $1.5 million grant to improve outcomes for students with disabilities. This support from the United States Department of Education will allow the Commonwealth to expand coaching and training for division and school administrators, teachers, and other educators. The grant will focus on increasing the number of Virginia school divisions employing evidenced-based strategies for raising academic achievement among students with disabilities, while reducing disproportionate disciplinary action and improving attendance.
