School district receives grant


The city’s school district will receive an infusion of funds to help it better prepare students for postsecondary success. Chelsea was among seven urban school districts across New England selected to share in $3.15 million in grants awarded by the Nellie Mae Education Foundation. The districts, which also include Revere, will receive a 20-month grant of $450,000. The grant program, New Approaches in Urban Districts, is designed to help low-income districts build capacity to enable more students to achieve at a higher level, and meet core curriculum standards by implementing “systemic approaches to student-centered learning,” according to Quincy-based Nellie Mae, the largest charitable organization in New England focused exclusively on education.
