Su: NHCS Grant Award
I am pleased to inform the stakeholders of our school corporation that CCSC has been awarded a $240,000 Grant, to be deployed over a three period, by North Central Health Services. The NCHS Resilient Youth Initiative Implementation Grant will be used to expand the social and emotional curriculum within our schools.
This is a HUGE opportunity for us to expand our social and emotional curriculum, in order to better serve our children. I am excited for them to benefit from this grant award.
Further, I am proud of the focused effort of Ms. Yessi Girdler, Ms. Laura Myers, and Ms. Alison Karrfalt, who put in a significant amount of time to identify a strategy that would bring this opportunity for CCSC. I appreciate their love and care of our children.
I would also like to thank Ms. Laura Gillman, technical advisor, and Ms. Chloe Benjamin, grant writing consultant. Both of these ladies provided valuable expertise during the grant writing process.
Additional details will be provided as we move forward.
