Youngstown schools gets $8M in stimulus money to improve academics

YOUNGSTOWN — The Youngstown City School District is getting more than $8 million in federal stimulus funding to help improve academic achievement, but the federal government is deciding how a big chunk of that money must be spent.

Superintendent Wendy Webb said $3.5 million is being channeled directly into existing federally-funded programs focusing on remedial reading and math and other programs targeting low-income children under Title 1.

Title 1 is a federal program that allocates supplemental money to schools with large concentrations of low-income students to help those students meet academic goals. Nearly 90 percent of Youngstown’s 6,500 students are listed as economically disadvantaged.
