Geneva school district gets $5.85M grant

City school officials said Monday that the district has been awarded a $5.85 million 21st Century Learning Center Grant.

The state Education Department announced last week that, starting in the 2017-18 school year, the district will receive $1.17 million per year for five years.

This extremely competitive, federally funded grant supports the creation of community learning centers that operate programs for students, according to the district.

This is the fourth time Geneva has received this grant, which covers a wide variety of before- and afterschool programming, including secondary summer school, Morning Program clubs, Boys and Girls Club programming, Finger Lakes Community College GED and English Second Language classes for families, Big Brothers Big Sisters mentorships and collaboration with Cornell Cooperative Extension and Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
