Congratulations to Madison Schools on their receipt of a $300,000 grant from the Madison Community Foundation to develop full service schools! Alder Denise Demarb attended the press conference on behalf of the City to hear the announcement.
Full service schools provide access to countless community services for children and parents alike, including on-site access to health care, food, mentoring, academic tutoring, and parent leadership opportunities. I am proud to have provided my support to their grant application efforts.
This grant represents a huge step in the right direction as we work to eliminate barriers to opportunity for all Madison residents.
