Winners Announced for Community Learning Schools Grant Initiative 2013 (NYSED)

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) recently posted a list of awardees for the Community Schools Grant Initiative (CSGI) for 2013. Congratulations to all of the winners on the award list including Insight Client Wellsville Central School District who is scheduled to receive funding of $120,000 as a 2013-2014 award and a cumulative award total of $500,000 over the period of 2013 – 2016.

Community Schools grants support “plans that target school buildings as ‘community  hubs to deliver co-located or school-linked academic, health, mental health,  nutrition, counseling, legal and/or other services to students and their  families in a manner that will lead to improved educational and other  outcomes.’”

The grant funds support almost any kind of service that support students and their families to help students be more successful in school. Wellsville chose to focus on:

  • Hiring social workers to increase school-based counseling services, establish case-management-like services, and support community linkages for families.
  • Providing school-based dental health services for students.
  • Providing nutrition education for students and their families in partnership with Jones Memorial Hospital.
