The Rowan-Salisbury School System has received a $1.4 million Carol M. White Physical Education Program federal grant.
The grant will provide funding for teacher training equipment and personal health awareness for students over the next three years to help improve student fitness and awareness about their health needs and risks.
“This is exciting news for our school system,” said Dr. Jim Emerson, chairman of the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education. “I am proud of our superintendent, Dr. Judy Grissom, and her staff for continuing to aggressively find funds to raise the level of education in our district. We are doing exactly what we need to be doing.”
