Wayne Trace Locals Schools in partnership with The Western Buckeye Educational Service Center is pleased to announce the award of a five-year Ohio Department of Education grant in the amount of $645,875. The purpose of the grant is to continue to increase Reading and Math achievement of at-risk students as measured by the Ohio Achievement Tests. Select students in grades 6-12 will be provided a structured after-school program to increase academics, enhance health/character development and encourage parent involvement.

Wayne Trace Jr./Sr. High School will be the location of the after school program. This site was chosen to address needs identified using academic and economic indicators. This program is designed to serve 36 students and their families.

Persons interested in finding out more information about our 21st Century Community Learning Center grant program should email our project coordinator, Ashley Shepherd at ashepherd@wb.noacsc.org.
