YOUNGSTOWN

The Youngstown City School District has received financial support amounting to $97,374 from four local foundations to help expand the work of the Quaglia Institute for Student Aspirations.

The four local foundations and amounts of their financial support are: Youngstown Foundation, $60,000; Rayen Foundation, $20,000; Community Foundation of Mahoning Valley, $12,374; Home Savings and Loan Charitable Foundation, $5,000.

Since September 2012, the school district and QISA have worked collaboratively with students, parents, teachers, and staff to change school culture as part of a comprehensive plan to improve the district’s academic standing.

“We are extremely grateful to each of these foundations for their continued financial support of the Youngstown City School District,” says superintendent Dr. Connie Hathorn. “These funds will allow our students, parents, teachers, and staff to continue to benefit from the QISA team’s shared commitment to student aspirations and diverse expertise in educational leadership.”

Founded by Dr. Russell J. Quaglia, QISA is an independent, nonprofit organization based in Portland, Maine.

The QISA staff of professional educators conducts research and develops program materials and initiatives on a national and international scale, working directly with students, teachers, school leaders, parents and educational policy makers.
