NHCS was recently awarded a $100K grant from a Maine DOE initiative called Rethinking Responsive Education Ventures. This has been a process lasting several months, including meetings and multiple proposal revisions. We are part of the initiative's final round of funding. Next steps are working with state education officials on a budget. The grant period ends June of 2024.
Our grant proposal focuses primarily on aligning career and technical education across the K-12 spectrum with the town's priorities relating to workplace development and economic diversification. This will include development of adult educational offerings throughout the school year, and possibly over summers.
More details on this grant are forthcoming as we begin using funds.
