Covington Independent Public Schools has been awarded more than $1 million in grants for reading, math and early childhood initiatives.

“We are thrilled to receive these grants as they will help us continue to meet the needs of our students,’’ said Covington Superintendent Alvin Garrison.  “The grants will not only support reading and math, but will help us increase school readiness for our youngest learners.’’
 
Two schools, Sixth District Elementary and Ninth District Elementary - were awarded the Math Achievement Fund Grant from the Kentucky Department of Education. The grant provides teacher training and programming for intervention services for primary students.  The grant is for $50,000 per year over a four year period totaling $200,000 per school. The district will use the grant funds to hire a full time math interventionist who will use a research-based math intervention program to meet the needs of students. 

In addition, three Covington schools, Sixth District, John G. Carlisle and Latonia Elementary, have been awarded the Kentucky Read to Achieve: Reading Diagnostic and Intervention Grant. This grant provides funds for schools to implement a reading intervention program that ensures all children learn to read well by the end of the primary grades.

The grant will assist the schools in hiring a full time reading interventionist and will help to provide a research-based reading intervention to the three schools. The grant is for $50,000 per year over a four year period totaling $200,000 per school.

Covington also received three Early Childhood and Quality Improvement Grants that enhances collaboration among community partners for young learners.  James E. Biggs Early Childhood Education Center in partnership with Chapman Childcare Center and Eastside Head Start are recipients of the grants that are designed to ensure that each child enters school ready to engage in and benefit from early learning experiences that best promote a child’s success.

The grants are $15,000 per location.  This grant was created on behalf of Kentucky All STARS, in collaboration with the Kentucky Governor’s Office of Early Childhood, the Division of Child Care and the Kentucky Department of Education for Early Childhood and Education providers. The grant assists each location with providing quality professional learning, research-based curriculum screening and assessment tools.  In addition, the grants will be used to increase family and community engagement and to enhance classroom instructional quality.
