Federal Grant Money Ticketed for Liberal Schools
03/19/2012

 TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas is receiving a $4.4 million federal
grant to continue efforts to turn around its persistently
lowest-achieving schools.
     The Kansas State Department of Education says the money will
benefit seven schools in the Wichita, Kansas City, Kan., Topeka,
Cherokee and Liberal school districts.
     The schools have received funding previously from the U.S.
Department of Education program, which requires districts to choose
an aggressive turnaround model. One option is replacing the
principal and improving the school through comprehensive reforms.
