Duval Schools in Jacksonville Get $400K AT&T Grant

13 11 2008

AT&T gave the Duval County School System a four-year, $400,000 grant to ensure students who started high school this year will graduate in 2012.

The grant funds the AT&T Aspire initiative, Communities In Schools of Jacksonville. The funds will expand the organization’s existing high school dropout prevention efforts to a total of six Jacksonville schools and more than 1,000 students.

AT&T Aspire is a national initiative. In addition to program grants it also funds a student shadowing initiative, underwriting of national research and support for 100 state and community dropout prevention summits.
