HARRISBURG, Pa. (WTAJ) — Governor Tom Wolf is dedicating $17 million to help 220 local education agencies improve educational services for 180,000 students across Pennsylvania.
This funding is under the federal Every student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Gov. Wolf said that schools that have been identified under ESSA need extra support and face additional challenges.
“This funding will help these high-need schools as they put systems in place to help students while we work to control the spread of this virus,” he said.
These student groups include race, economically disadvantaged, English language learners and students with disabilities.
