Md. Gets $6.7M More To Turn Around Worst Schools

BALTIMORE (AP) — Federal education officials say Maryland will receive another $6.7 million to continue turnaround efforts in the state’s worst schools.

The U.S. Department of Education recently announced the federal school improvement grants for districts in the state with chronically low-performing schools. The bulk of that funding has been invested in Baltimore City and Prince George’s County in past years.

Maryland has already received $60.7 million since the program was redesigned in 2009.
