Graudation Matters Montana Challenge Fund

Thursday, March 1, 2012, 11:35 am

The OPI received 21 applications from communities and schools around the state in the first round of the GMM Challenge Fund, made available through the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation. Applicants worked closely with teachers, students and local community members to develop proposals that are based on school data, successful efforts in the state, and the need to communicate that everyone has a role in supporting students to graduate from high school ready for their next steps in life. An internal/external team is reviewing the applications and the OPI anticipates announcing grant awards on March 19, 2012.
