ASD Schools Awarded CTE and Start-Up Grants

Two Achievement School District schools receive funds for CTE and small business start-ups. Humes Middle School is set to receive $9,200 for CTE Career Exploration. This grant will help provide students with clearer pathways when transitioning from middle to high school.

MLK Prep High School is one of only eight in the state to receive School-Based Enterprise grant funds to improve students’ transition from high school into postsecondary education and the workforce. MLK Prep will receive $19,300 for their enterprise experiences.

The goal is to help students articulate their career goals within a specific pathway and better understand what it takes to get there.

Funding is provided through Governor Lee’s Future Workforce Initiative, which aims to increase access to CTE, STEM, and Work-Based Learning in the classroom.

Congrats to these two schools!
