Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to help establish more than 100, redesigned high schools in 17 counties in northeast NC that offer rigorous academic programs relevant to current economic opportunities. Critical to the program is the retraining of teachers whose subjects are not traditionally tied to work and the community. This collaborative effort between education and business will measurably improve student achievement, student and teacher retention, and will spark economic development statewide.
