A Central Oregon school is getting a large federal grant in hopes of helping struggling students in struggling schools. Jefferson County Middle School is getting a federal grant of $3.4 million in the second round of the school improvement grants. These funds are funneled to persistently low- achieving schools. Jefferson County Schools Superintendent rick Molitor this money allows them to hire more teaching positions to help students at the middle school who are falling behind in math or reading. “I think the biggest one out there is double dosing, or workshop time, Students that are having difficulty or challenges meeting the academic requirements, we do have additional workshops and supports that includes staff and teachers to provide that time for the students to meet those increased requirements.” Molitor says a similar grant they just received at the Madras High School is working well; they are already seeing good results.
