The West Virginia Department of Education announced over the weekend that it had selected a total of 41 schools across the state which will soon be receiving their share of some $620,000 in reading, math, and family literacy grants.

Locally, at least three counties will benefit from the grant. Wirt, Calhoun and Gilmer will also see funds. Wirt Primary Center will receive $10,000, Glenville Elementary will receive $10,000, and Arnoldsburg and Pleasant Hill will share $10,000, according to an announcement made by WVRC Radio.

Statistics say that 78% of schools that have previously received and used these grants for their intended purposes have shown significant improvement in their SAT-9 scores.
