Goshen elementary awarded $1.75 million for student improvement

A Goshen elementary school is one of seven schools in the state of Indiana to receive a prestigious grant.

Chamberlain Elementary has been awarded $1.75 million to improve student performance.

Starting next school year, all of the grade levels at the school will have mobile iPad labs.

Most of the grant money will be used for what's called expeditionary learning.

It will help students learn beyond just text books by working in groups and learning how to solve problems at a young age.

Principal Kimberly Branham says, “It is geared towards increasing student engagement so they can increase their learning and increase their achievement and become stronger members of the community.”

The grant is Title I based.

Plus, with the grant money, teachers will be paid for extra planning hours and receive extra training.
