Walla Walla Schools Score $1.8 Million After School Program Money

Walla Walla Public Schools received a $1.8 million federal five-year grant to provide 21st Century Community Learning Center after school programs at Edison, Green Park and Sharpstein elementary schools.

WW School District

This new funding allows 300 additional students, 100 per elementary school, to participate in these high quality programs focused on improved student academic performance. The primary objective of the new grant is to raise English Language Arts and math skills. The grant also provides additional resources to develop social-emotional support, reduce discipline referrals through improved student behaviors and curb chronic absenteeism.

“Walla Walla Public Schools now houses eight federal after school program sites, which includes the existing Blue Ridge, Garrison, Pioneer, Lincoln, and Wa-Hi programs. Integral to the success of the new grant are the four community partners: Community Resilience Initiative, Friends of Children of Walla Walla, Commitment to Community, and SOS Health Services.
