Avonworth Receives Grant

The Avonworth School District has announced the receipt of a $1,000 grant to be used in the District’s English as a Second Language (ESL) program.

"Our ESL program is steadily growing," commented Superintendent Dr. Valerie McDonald, "and we are honored and grateful to have received this grant."

The grant was awarded to some members of the consortium of districts that use ESL teachers from the Allegheny Intermediate Unit (AIU). It will be used to help off-set the costs of baseline data collection in the district’s ESL program.
