The Fairfield-School District will receive more than $1.3 million in funding from the “A-G” Completion Improvement Grant program, according to a staff report. The total includes about $12,500 that’s been added in recent days.
Trustees on Thursday will review and potentially approve the plan for the “A-G” grant program.
The money derives from Assembly Bill 130, which became law in July. One portion of the bill contains the “A-G” grant program, which is designed to help increase the number of high school students, particularly those students of families that meet income or categorical eligibility requirements for free or reduced-priced meals under the National School Lunch Program, English learners and foster youth to graduate from high school with “A-G” eligibility.
