Million-dollar grant helps Iroquois, Doss create better learning environment

Jefferson County Schools now have more than a million dollars to help create a better learning environment for students.

The U.S. Department of Education on Monday gave the three-year, 1.5 million grant to Doss and Iroquois High Schools.

The goal is to help large schools create smaller, more connected, personal learning communities for students.  As JCPS Superintendent Dr. Sheldon Berman explains, "I think the design that we're going to see at both Iroquois and Doss and that has been evolving now will be stregthened, and will have tremendous impact on students for years to come."

Freshmen at both schools will share teachers and advisors.  Sophomores then choose a school of study that allows them to focus on a certain career.

This is the first year for the program at Doss, and the fifth for Iroquois.
