Race to the Top Columbia County
Columbia County's school system has finalized their plans for spending the 1.3 million dollars they received through the Race to the Top Program. In a meeting this morning, Columbia County's leadership board decided which schools needed most attention. The oldest high school in the county is getting the most attention.
A new state standard requires all freshman to pass an algebra I exam end of the year exam. Taken electronically, this means updating technology and school's infrastructure to handle all those tests. For Columbia County high school, Race to the Top grant money could not have come at a better time.
For the first time this year, freshman students are required to pass an algebra I end of course exam, causing some uncertainties for superintendent Mike Millikin. The county received 1.3 million dollars that will be spent over a four year period. Millikin plans to focus on technology and infrastructure upgrades that will enable student testing to run smoothly.
